The Peoples Democratic Party has expelled one of its members in Edo State, Kassim Afegbua, over alleged anti-party activities.
Afegbua was an aide to a former governor of Edo State and ex-National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.
Afegbua had also accused PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, of fraud and had asked the Economic and Financial Commission to probe the party’s finances.
But the PDP announced his expulsion in a letter signed by the party’s chairman in Edo State, Tony Aziegbemi. The letter was addressed to Secondus.
It was titled, ‘Re: Resolution Of The Expulsion Of Kassim Afegbua As A Member Of PDP’.
The statement read, “Mr Kassim Afegbua as a member engaged in series of anti-party activities in his ward before and during Edo State Gubernatorial Election of September 19, 2020.
“All attempts by his ward, local government area and state disciplinary committees to secure his attendance at various meetings to clear himself of all allegations proved abortive.
“I hereby forward herewith to you the expulsion of Mr Kassim Afegbua as unanimously affirmed by the state disciplinary committee of our party in Edo State.”
