Reformation Agenda, a Socio-Political and Socio-Cultural Group that projects the interest of Essien Udim Local Government Area, has commended the action of the Essien Udim Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on six erring members of Essien Udim Legislative Council, saying it will serve as a deterrent to others.

Speaking with journalists through its Coordinator, Comrade Martins Inyangetoh, on Friday, the group said the party’s action was “In line with section 58 (1) and 59 (1)(G) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Constitution (as amended in 2017) and by the resolution of the Ward executive committee meeting held on the 30th of January, 2019.”

The expelled members are Hon. Innocent Raymond Udoutin (Leader – Ikpe Annang Ward),Hon. Ekaette Edet Akpakpan (Deputy Leader – Afaha Ward), Hon. Edemeka Udo Ekpe (Ukana West Ward 2), Hon. Eseme Augustine Akpan (Odoro Ikot Ward 2), Hon. Okokon Udo Uwak (Odoro Ikot Ward 1), and Hon. Uduak Bernard Afangideh (Ukana West Ward 1).

Expulsion letters signed by their respective Ward Chairmen, stated thus: “In line with section 58 (1) and 59 (1)(G) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Constitution (as amended in 2017) and by the resolution of the Ward executive committee meeting held on the 30th of January, 2019. You are hereby expelled from the party with effect from January 31, 2019. The reason for the expulsion is that you have continuously disobeyed or neglected to carry out the lawful directives of the party in addition to engaging yourself in anti-party activities.”
