According to a letter obtained by the NewsCritic online conveying the decision of the party to the National Chairman of the ADC, which was dated 4th July, 2022, the SWC disclosed that the party chairman Obinna Don Norman was suspended for embezzlement of party funds and breach of party’s constitution.

The letter stated that the house has mandated him to hand over his duties to the Deputy Chairman of the party and Legal Adviser respectively upon ratification by the SEC meeting to follow immediately.

Also, the SWC clarified that the Secretary has been directed to write the suspension letter to the embattled state chairman.

The letter reads in part: “we make reference to our meeting held today being 4th July, 2022 wherein we resolved to suspend Don Norman Obinna as the state chairman and Emole Onwuasonya as the Coordinator INEC Liaison and Electoral Matters for embezzlement of party fund and breach of the party constitution”.

The petition dated 9th June, 2022 and addressed to the National Chairman ADC, Abuja, was titled ‘Battered Public Image and Serial Nefarious activities of Don Norman Obinna Haunts ADC Abia State Chapter’.  

The group raised concern over the activities of the chairman and the future of the party, claiming that his presence is a hinderance to the party’s growth as Abians are reluctant to join the party because of the image of the chairman.

Efforts to get the response of Obinna Don Norman was not successful as message sent to him didn’t get any reply. Also, when this reporter contacted the governorship candidate of the ADC Bishop Sunday Onuoha for comments, he replied that he is out of the country’.
