Ebonyi chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP State Working Committee has suspended its Chairman, Mr Okorie Tochukwu, over alleged misconduct.
This was as the party in the state alleged that Okorie diverted over N53 million from its account without recourse to others who are signatories to the account.
The deputy state Chairman of PDP, Ifeanyi Nworie, stated this after the SWC’s emergency meeting in Abakaliki, on Monday, adding that the suspension was for a period of one month.
“At the Emergency SWC meeting today, we reviewed the activities of our chairman, Tochukwu Okorie and his misconduct.
“The chairman has failed to organise a meeting for more than four months which is against the party’s constitution.
“The Deputy Chairman, the Legal Adviser, the Publicity Secretary, and the Women Leader were among those at the Emergency meeting of today.”
