The Divisional Party Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi has passed a vote of confidence on LGA’s Chairman, Alhaji Husseini Ibrahim Ejini.
The committee, in a statement issued in Lokoja on Monday, distanced itself from a purported recent statement alleging that Ibrahim had been suspended over alleged financial mismanagement and anti-party activities.
The statement, signed by nine ward chairmen and secretaries, organising secretaries and ex-officios, described the purported suspension of the party chairman as “baseless, unfounded and misleading”.
The committee’ Spokesman and Anyigba ward Chairman, Alhaji Isa Amidu, said that even the former PDP State Party Chairman, Chief John Odawn, who was alleged to have signed the statement of the purported suspension of Ibrahim, had debunked the claim.
Amidu said that the Dekina PDP party committee was of the belief that then false suspension statement might had emanated from “unidentified persons within the local government area supported by some diaspora politicians”.
According to him, the Dekina PDP party working committee has unanimously passed a vote of confidence on Hussain, whose tenure is expected to end by 2025.
“The Dekina PDP party working committee hereby vehemently condemn the activities of those behind that illegal activity and falsehood.”
He said for clarity and avoidance of doubt, members of the working committee have appended their signatures in solidarity with the substantive Dekina PDP, Alhaji Ibrahim Husseini Ejini as the party chairman till his tenure officially ends.
