One of the leaders of the Dan Orbih-led Legacy PDP in Edo State and the immediate past member for Oredo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Omoregie Ogbiede-Ihama, has been expelled from the party.

The decision was reached at an enlarged meeting of the Oredo PDP Ward 2 held at Airport road in Benin City, the Edo State capita

Reading the resolution, the Chairman of PDP Ward 2 in Oredo, Lawrence Aguebor, said that six weeks ago, precisely 3rd of May 2024, the ward executives and critical stakeholders of Oredo Ward 2, met and suspended Ogbeide Ihama-Omoregie for a period of 30 days and a disciplinary committee was set up for him.

“The committee wrote him letters and called him on phone and sat five times and Ogbiede Ihama-Omoregie failed to appear before the committee.

“Today, we have received the report and recommendations of the committee and the committee has recommended the expulsion of Ogbeide Ihama-Omoregie from PDP.

“The offences of Ihama for which he now stands expelled is captured under section 58 (1) a, b, d, e, f, h, l, j, l with the expulsion of Ogbiede Ihama-Omoregie, members of the general public are to cease and desist from doing any business that has to do with the PDP with him.” further reports that Ogbeide-Ihama had also aspired for the ticket in the 2024 race but withdrew at the last minute following claims of bias in the organisation of the primaries.

Ogbiede-Ihama who until now had been the fulcrum upon which the PDP osciliated in Oredo has meanwhile yet to respond to the news that he has been expelled from the party.
