The media learnt this from the South-South Co-ordinator of PDP Concerned Youths, Comrade Palson Arusuayine today being on Monday, 3rd day of October, 2022 during a protest march to Delta PDP State Secretariat in Asaba as group presented speech, then called on Hon. Dan Orbir to unite party or quietly tender his resignation to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
Speaking during the protests match for peace and unity in the party, Comrade Palson Arusuayine stated that, “it is no longer news that People’s Democratic Party’s South South Chairman, Hon. Dan Orbih have continued to masquerade himself as a party faithful meanwhile he is the the exact leech who is neither here nor there and this has surmounted to chaos among party faithfuls in the South-South region and particularly in his home state,Edo state”.
The party faithful noted that, after an emergency meeting today of top South-South Youth leaders and critical stakeholders of the party, that it was concluded upon that, peace can never find its way to the South-South, because the man at the helm of affairs is neither here nor there.
In his words: “Orbih is said to be very distracted, uncoordinated and lack the qualities of a good leader. It was also mentioned that worst still, he is always absent at critical meetings held and this isn’t good for the party. More irritating is his pronouncement that he will sabotage the PDP 2023 presidential campaign”.
“Majorly, his decisions are jeered towards self, his contenance towards the affairs of the party is also said to bring evil and bad luck if quick actions aren’t taken and measures put in play”.
“Concerned PDP youths says a reverse will be the case if PDP as a party is silent about the matter. As the adage goes, ‘he who doesn’t plan, plans to fail’, since preparation for the forthcoming elections is ongoing and the leader isn’t present to champion the way forward, rather planning for it’s fail,it is a danger sign and the earlier the matter is contained the better”.
“Dan orbih should honorably step aside if he still has honor or know it’s meaning,or better still,we call on the NWC of the party to use the powers given to it by NEC to suspend Dan orbih,until it is proven that he is born again politically”.
“Unlike his predecessor, Elder Emma Ogidi who worked tirelessly to bring winnings back to the party while peace and conflicts were resolved, Dan Orbih is the exact opposite as he has felt unconcerned, nonchalant and above all proven to be the black sheep of the party”.
“Based on the aforementioned, our plea to Orbih who is too busy to take up his responsibilities and ensure winnings for the party come next year, to either quietly step down for the interest of peace or that the NWC of the party should kindly suspend him so the party can have peace”.
“They however noted that a house divided amongst itself cannot stand so he should allow Elder Emma Ogidi come back to put the house inorder and ensure winnings for the party in the South South which is very crucial for the upcoming elections”.
