PDP Expels Former Commissioner Kassim Afegbua


Kassim Afegbua Expelled From The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Over Anti-Party Activities.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expelled a former commissioner for Information in Edo State, Prince Kassim Afegbua, over anti-party activities in his ward before and during the 2020 Edo State governorship.

A letter from the Edo State chairman Dr Tony Aziegbemi, addressed to the National. chairman, of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus which was dated May 18 2021 and titled

“ Re: Resolution of the expulsion of Kassim Afegbua as a member of PDP”, indicated that Mr. Kassim Afegbua though summoned to appear before disciplinary committees setup by his ward, local government area and at the state level, failed to respond or appear before the committee. 

MediaOrchid recalls that Mr. Afegbua had earlier written the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission (ICPC), and demanded investigation into how the party leadership allegedly spent N10billion it generated during the purchase of forms for the 2019 general election.

This led to the invitation of some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) members of the party even as the party insisted instead that it had generated about N4.6 billion

Read letter : 

“ Mr Kassim Afegbua as a member of PDP hitherto engaged in series of anti-party activities in his ward before and during Edo State Gubernatorial election of September 19, 2020.

“ All attempts by his ward, Local Government Area and State Disciplinary Committees to secure his attendance at various meetings to clear himself of all allegations proved abortive.

“ I hereby forward herewith to you the expulsion of Mr Kassim Afegbua as unanimously affirmed by the State Disciplinary Committee of our party in Edo State.”
