Benin – The Restoration Group, a political pressure group in the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform on Monday called for the resignation of the entire state executive Council of the party led by Chief Dan Orbih.

The group berated the party Exco for allegedly crying wolf over an election they were ill prepared for.

“The PDP did not prepare for the just concluded governorship election in the state how could they have won the election?” the group asked.

While calling on the national leadership of the party to set up a caretaker committee that will oversee the affairs of the party before the next congress is conducted, the grouped demanded that “the party should prosecute all those who collected money for the election and pocketed it”.

Addressing journalists in Benin City, the leader of the group and chieftain of the PDP in Oredo Local Government Area, Uyi Igbinigie, said contrary to the position of the party leadership that the election was rigged in favour of the APC by the INEC, “the election was one of the best conducted so far by INEC and it was free, fair and credible.

He argued that the PDP was already battling with credibility issues long before the election, especially with news that the parties flag-bearer collected huge funds during the last Presidential election, following which he was a guest of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

“The problem was that before the election because of the financial recklessness of the PDP during the last general election, PDP already had a bad name in Edo. And to add to the injury, the Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who was the PDP candidate was among those who collected N700million for the presidential election.

“And his visit to EFCC on the matter left sore pain in campaigns.

“The other reason was the attitude of the state Exco led by Chief Orbih. Rather than speaking on what PDP will do during the campaigns, Orbih was busy raining abuses on Oshiomhole who is an outgoing governor and Godwin Obaseki. meanwhile Obaseki was quietly telling Edo people what he will do for them.

“So we should not waste our money going to tribunal, we believe that PDP needs to sit down and re-strategize but that will be after the entire state Exco must have resigned for peace to rain in Edo PDP” he declared.
