Former Enugu governor Chime dumps PDP, says party is dead

Former governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu state has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under whose platform he ruled the state for eight years is dead and cremated.

Chime who refuted the reports that he had defected to APC, wonders why the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has not de-listed PDP as a political party.

The former governor explained he quit PDP because it was no longer the same party, with two groups claiming to be in-charge, and none of the two is in control.

He said, “It is surprising or maybe INEC has not deregistered the PDP because the organisation is no longer working in tandem with the constitution that created it.
“The PDP as originally formed has been cremated and no serious-minded politician will remain in it.
“If those still remaining feel strongly about coming together they can come back, secure de-registration of the party and then form another party.”

The former PDP stalwart said he is still consulting on which of the other parties to join after PDP, and ask his supporters to look for another political platform.

He, however, said PDP has no provision in its constitution for a caretaker committee headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
