The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has suspended 15 Local government party chairmen with immediate effect.

Though no reason was given for the suspension, the decision of the PDP to suspend the 15 LGA party chairmen was contained in a statement by the State Secretary of the party, Sam Okpoko.

Okpoko said, “the State Executive of the party in an emergency meeting on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at the State Secretariat approved the indefinite suspension of the 15 LGA Party Chairmen.

“The affected Local Government Party Chairmen include: Abua-Odual, Ahoada East, Ahoada West, Akuku-Toru, Andoni, Bonny, Degema, Eleme and Emohua.

“Others are Khana, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Okrika, Omuma, Opobo/Nkoro and Oyigbo.”
