Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo yesterday sacked two of his aides for undisclosed reasons.
Nwodo also wrote the Inspector General of Police to clear the air on the conflicting situation in Anambra state chapter of the PDP.
The two aides affected were Chief Ogbeneaga Oru-gbo, Special Assistant (Special Duties) and Mr. Frank Igwebuike, Special assistant (National Assembly Matters).
The development brou-ght the number of aides he (Nwodo) has sacked since assuming the headship of PDP to three.
He had earlier sacked his former Principal Secretary for the issuance of unathorized clearance letter to fake monitors who went to Gombe State to illegally assess the conduct of Senatorial bye-elections.
Nwodo, who reiterated his determination to raise the image of the party by ensuring very high moral standing among the staff and members of the party, charged the two appointees to strive to make their impact felt in the drive to reform the party.
Meanwhile, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo yesterday explained the conflicting situation in Anambra state chapter of the PDP in a letter to the Inspector General of Police.
Nwodo, in the letter titled “Security for the conduct of PDP Congresses in Anambra State” explained that “following conflicting Court Orders in respect of the Anambra State chapter of the PDP, our National Working Committee (NWC) has directed the Zonal Working Committee of the party led by Chief Olisa Metuh, National Vice Chairman (South-East) to conduct fresh congresses at wards and Local government levels in the state for purposes of producing our candidates for the forth coming local government elections in Anambra State”.
