The Delta State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Thursday endorsed  the suspension of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Godsday Orubebe. 
Orubebe, alongside nine others from the Burutu Local Government Area  chapter of the party were suspended by the local chapter for offences ranging from anti-party activities as well as fostering disrepute, contempt and hatred within the party ahead of the 2015 elections.
The minister had since described  his suspension as baseless, illegal  and lacking in merits.

But the state chairman of the party, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi, said yesterday in Asaba that  the notice of the minister’s suspension had just reached his office, adding that if governors could be suspended, there was no reason why the party could not discipline an errant minister.

“Discipline must be enforced in the party.  If two governors could be suspended, why not a minister? The law is not a respecter of anybody. Nobody is above the law or the constitution of the party. If the minister is found wanting, he has the right to appeal his suspension. The party provides for that. So, it will be treated on merit,”  he added.
He called on party faithful to remain calm and law abiding while the matter lasted.
