Umahi’s Defection: PDP suspends 3 senators, 5 Reps members in Ebonyi

The Ebonyi State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended the three Senators and five House of Representatives members from the state over anti-Party activities.

Many were surprised to hear of the suspension because the elected members on Wednesday vowed to remain in the party, despite the defection of Governor Dave Umahi to the APC.

But the PDP Chairman, Barrister Onyekachi Nwebonyi suspended them, accusing them of anti-party activities.

The three Senators are Sam Egwu, a former governor of the state, Michael Ama Nnachi and Obinna Ogba.

The suspended House of Representatives members are Chukwuma Nwanzunku, Sylvester Ogbaga, Livunus Makwe, Idu Igariwey, Victor Aleke and Chris Usulor.

The party further invited them to appear before its disciplinary Committee today to defend themselves over the allegations.
