In a bid to ensure transparency and accountability, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ofu Local Government Area has impeached its Chairman, Engineer Gabriel Itanyi.

 

The impeachment is contained in a letter to the Kogi state PDP Secretariat and signed by sixteen officials, including party executives and stakeholders among others.

According to the letter, the removal of Engineer Gabriel Itanyi from office followed thorough investigations of the allegations levelled against him and the consideration of the recommendations of the report by a panel.

The letter reads in part :

1. That the suspension of Engineer Gabriel Itanyi is hereby ratified and upheld and he is hereby impeached.

2. That Hon. Inda Audu Agbonika’s position as substansive Chairman is hereby ratified and upheld by the Executive Committee.

The Executive Committee noted that all the seven allegations levelled against Engineer Itanyi were true as attested by other executives invited by the investigative panel and his outright refusal to appear before the committee or panel.

It viewed the actions of the former PDP Chairman as retrogressive, capable of drawing the party backward.

It will be recalled that Engineer Gabriel Itanyi was alleged to be gradually killing the party through insensitivity to the party‘s activities, autocratic, corruption and not allowing decampees into PDP in the area among other offences.

Meanwhile, Honourable Inda Audu Agbonika is now to serve as substantive Chairman of PDP in Ofu Local Government.
