Former Edo deputy gov. Shuaibu expelled from PDP

Former Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu has been expelled from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Dockaysworld reports.

Shaibu was expelled alongside three prominent members, including Dan Orbih, National Vice Chairman (South South) and Omorgie Ogbeide-Ihama, former House of Representatives member.

The State Publicity Secretary, Ogie Vasco, announced the expulsion, citing anti-party activities.

He said the decision to expel the trio was taken on Tuesday at a meeting attended by nine members of the State Working Committee at the party’s secretariat in Benin City.

“The SWC has extensively deliberated on the issue and resolved to expel, with immediate effect, Chief Dan Orbih, National Vice Chairman South South Phillip Shaibu and upheld the expulsion of Ogbeide-Ihama from Ward 2, Oredo LGA,” he said.

The expulsion comes after Shaibu and Ogbeide-Ihama openly supported the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Monday Okpebholo, while Orbih was appointed to a board by President Bola Tinubu.
