The crisis rocking the Edo State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has taken a twist as ward chairmen and their executives in Etsako Central have unanimously resolved to suspend the LGA chairman of the party, Mr Kassim Abdulkareem and the secretary, Mr Sunday Kadiri.
The ward executives also passed a vote of confidence on former Deputy Governor of the state and former Chief of Staff to former President GoodLuck Jonathan, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe, for his fatherly role in uniting the party.
They blamed the crisis in Etsako Central PDP on the divide and rule tendencies of the LGA party chairman, saying that his leadership style fell short of expectations and would take the party nowhere.
“All the actions of Kassim Abdulkareem have been directed towards a struggle for power. Either to keep power, increase power or a demonstration of power as party chairman. Instead of bringing everyone together as a family, the only thing that matters to him is power”
