JUST IN: PDP Expels Lawmaker For Wike’s Ward Days After He Dumped The Minister, Backed Fubara

Days after resigning his position and pledging allegiance to Governor Siminalayi Fubara, former leader of the Obio/Akpor legislative council, Hon. Achor Nna, got expulled from his ward chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a letter titled ‘RE: EXPULSION OF HON ACHOR NNA’ dated 9th March 2024 and signed by the PDP Ward 9 Chairman in Obio/Akpor LGA, Collins Chukwu, the ward accused the lawmaker of failing to defend himself from allegations of misconduct and misappropriation despite receiving multiple invitations to do so.

The letter, which reads, “The Ward 9 PDP executive under the able Chairmanship of Chukwu Collins Wobo, JP on the 10th day of February 2024 received from the Elioparanwo PDP chapter the suspension of Hon Achor Nna, the former leader of OBIO/AKPOR LGA council legislative arm.”

“In view of the above,” the letter continues, “the chairman of Ward 9 acting in compliance with chapter 10, section 57 (1) of the party constitution set up a disciplinary committee purposefully to ascertain the veracity of the allegations against Hon. Achor Nna.”

“The disciplinary committee headed by Chief Solomon Chime Esq invited him (Achor Nna) severally and repeatedly to appear before the committee to defend himself of the grievous allegations (misappropriation of funds and misconduct) against him which invitations were utterly turned down.”

“In view of this,” it states, “the committee recommended that he (Hon Achor Nna) be expelled from the party and the fact that Hon Achor Nna was unable to defend himself, he was expelled from the party, we had no option but to take this decision as the ward cannot condone his unwarranted acts and indiscipline.”

“So, the resignation of Hon Achor Nna from his position as the leader of OBIO AKPOR legislative council and as councillor Ward 9 didn’t come to us as a surprise,” the letter concludes, “because he couldn’t defend himself from the allegations against him which led to his expulsion from the Party.”

Collins Chukwu, the PDP Ward 9 Chairman, stated, “The Ward 9 PDP executive under the able Chairmanship of Chukwu Collins Wobo, JP on the 10th day of February 2024 received from the Elioparanwo PDP chapter the suspension of Hon Achor Nna, the former leader of OBIO/AKPOR LGA council legislative arm.”

“The disciplinary committee headed by Chief Solomon Chime Esq invited him (Achor Nna) severally and repeatedly to appear before the committee to defend himself of the grievous allegations (misappropriation of funds and misconduct) against him which invitations were utterly turned down.”

“So, the resignation of Hon Achor Nna from his position as the leader of OBIO AKPOR legislative council and as councillor Ward 9 didn’t come to us as a surprise,” Chukwu continued, “because he couldn’t defend himself from the allegations against him which led to his expulsion from the Party.”

Achor Nna who represents the ward of former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, had dumped switched loyalty from him to Gov Fubara amid the ongoing political crisis in the state.

The political crisis in Rivers state appears to be far from resolution as both sides continue jostling for control of the political structure in the state.
