According to Nwodo, some persons carried his mock coffin around with inscriptions  “Nwodo must resign” and “Nwodo is killing PDP”.

He further stated that Sullivan Chime, the Enugu State governor had influenced  lawmakers to move for his suspension from the PDP.

He also accused the traditional rulers from Ukehe in Igbo  Etiti Local Government  and  some politicians that they conspired against him for personal reason.

According to him, the moves by the South-East governors to reconcile him and Gov.  Chime failed because the governor did not  withdraw the suit to pave way for  out-of-court settlement.
