YPP Suspends Imo Chairman Over Misconduct, Abuse Of Power


The State Chairman of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Imo State, Mr Victor Diala, has been suspended over gross misconduct and abuse of office.

Mr Diala was suspended by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

His suspension is pending following the outcome of the report of the committee set up to investigate the matter.

In a statement issued on Sunday by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Egbeloa Wale-Martins, the NWC has mandated Kingsley Nwahiri to take charge.

Also, the party’s organ reinstated its Orsu LGA chairman, Chief Bernard Uzoeto.

Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State is made up of autonomous communities including Ihitenansa, Amaruru, Amazu, Amaebu, Amannachi, Awo-Idemili, Asaa Ubirielem, Eziawa, Umuhu Okabia, Orsu Ihiteukwa, Okwu Ufuruaku, Okwu Amaraihe, and Okwu Etiti.

“Sequel to the NWC’s actions of Saturday, September 9 and consequent upon extended deliberations the NWC approved the immediate suspension of the Imo chairman of the YPP, Mr Victor Diala.

“This is based on the provisions of the YPP’s Constitution on gross misconduct and abuse of office.

“Pending the conclusion of the report of the committee set up to investigate the allegations, Hon. Kingsley Nwahiri has been mandated to take over from the suspended chairman in the interim.

“This is due to the noticeable and unfortunate ailment of the Deputy Chairman, Mr Louise Ugochukwu, to fully discharge the responsibilities associated with this office at this time.

“The NWC also ordered the immediate reinstatement of Bernard Uzoeto, Orsu Local Government YPP Chairman, who was unlawfully suspended.

“His suspension ran contrary to extant provisions of the Constitution of the party,’’ Wale-Martins stated.

The NWC commended the judgment delivered by the court affirming the victory of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah (YPP-Anambra South) and those of other party members at the election petitions courts.
