A statement by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Chris Nehikhare, explained the expulsion will remain until Ize-Iyamu “acknowledges, accepts and addresses the issue of his decamping to APC.”

The statement reads: “In the last few days, the Edo PDP has been inundated with calls and enquiries regarding the stories trending both in print and social media as it concerns one of our leaders, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
