Presenting the report to the Delta State Chairman of the party, Olorogun Kingsley Esiso, yesterday, Tuesday, June 30th, the Disciplinary Committee Chairman, Barr. Lovette Idisi disclosed that the panel painstakingly investigated all the allegations contained in it’s terms of reference without fear or favour and while thanking the party for finding them worthy to perform this important task, pledged the readiness of members to undertake further assignments in future, whenever their services was required.
