Any letter purportedly signed by sacked Delta SDP chairman not authorized – caretaker committee says

The Delta State Chapter of the Social Democratic Party has declared that “there is no going back on the gubernatorial election petition filed by the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Chief Kenneth Gbagi, before the State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal”.

This was contained in a three-point resolution adopted by the SDP newly-inaugurated 12-member Caretaker Committee in Delta State, headed by Mrs Esther Ikule, at the end of the committee’s inaugural meeting held on Saturday at the party’s Delta Central Secretariat along Warri-Sapele Road.

In the resolution jointly signed by Mrs Ikule and Mr Enebraye Kembigha, the Chairman and Secretary respectively, the Caretaker Committee passed a vote of confidence on the party’s governorship candidate in Delta State, Chief Kenneth Gbagi, assuring that the committee will continue to support Gbagi in the pursuit of his mandate at the Governorship Election Tribunal until justice is dispensed in the matter.

The resolution read partly, “At no time did the SDP executive in Delta State before it was dissolved by the NWC on May 2, 2023, met, discuss, and agreed to write a letter dissociating the SDP in Delta with the election petition filed by Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi.”

“Therefore, any purported letter signed by the former Chairman, Mr Oke Idawene, is not authorised. It is fake, it is null and void and of no effect whatsoever.”

The Delta SDP Caretaker Committee expressed appreciation to the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Shehu Musa Gabam, and the NWC “for the excellent leadership, direction and support in steering the Delta State Chapter of the party to overcome the current challenges.”

Earlier while addressing the newly inaugurated SDP Delta 12-member Caretaker Committee, the party’s National Vice Chairman, South-South, Fred Owotorufa, had charged the Committee to “re-organise and re-position the party in the State and also recruit fresh members, especially youths, in all Wards and Local Governments across the state.”
