Okafor Ofiebor/Port Harcourt

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bayelsa State, southern Nigeria, has inaugurated a 7-man disciplinary committee, with a mandate to investigate and take appropriate action against members of the party, who perpetrated anti-party activities and other acts of misconduct that were inimical to the interest of the party during the last general elections.

The committee, which was ratified after a meeting of the State Executive Committee of the party, on Tuesday, has Mr. Cleopas Moses as Chairman and Ofulu John-Dede as member/secretary.

Others are the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Barrister Osom Macbere, a member of the State House of Assembly,  Jonathan Obuebite, Wonyikuro Bekeowei, Chief Mitema Obordor and Sir Henry Domo-Spiff.

A statement by the party says it can no longer fold its arms and watch members of the party openly work against the interest of the party at critical moments and claim to be members, pointing out that the ugly trend accounted for the party’s failure in some of the Assembly polls at the state level and even the presidency.

The statement signed by Keku Godspower, the State Secretary of PDP, expressed confidence in the ability of the committee to deliver on its assignment, adding that it will go a long way in bringing sanity to the PDP in the state.

The committee is expected to submit its report within one week.
