BREAKING: PDP suspends senior members for 2023 anti-party activities: Shakeup imminent

PDP suspends senior members over allegations of anti-party activities: Shakeup ahead of upcoming 2023 Elections.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has approved the suspension of several party members over allegations of anti-party activities. The suspensions took effect on Friday, January 20, 2023.

Senator Chimaroke Nnamani (Enugu State) and Chief Chris Ogbu (Imo State) have been suspended by the PDP’s NWC following a review of the party’s affairs in the country.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, issued a statement regarding the suspensions, saying that the NWC also approved the suspension of several party members in Ekiti State for similar allegations.

The suspended members in Ekiti State include Ayeni Funso (Ekiti North), Ajijola Lateef Oladimeji (Ekiti Central), Emiola Adenike Jennifer (Ekiti South II), Ajayi Babatunde Samuel (Ekiti North II), Olayinka James Olalere (Ekiti Central), Akerele Oluyinka (Ekiti North I), and Fayose Oluwajomiloju John (Ekiti Central I).

The PDP has urged all leaders, stakeholders, and members of the party across the country to remain united and focused on the mission of the party to “Rescue, Rebuild and Redirect” the nation from misrule.

The suspensions come as the PDP continues to make efforts to strengthen the party and ensure its readiness for the upcoming elections.

The allegations of anti-party activities are taken seriously by the party and the suspensions are a clear indication of the PDP’s commitment to maintaining discipline and unity within the party.

The suspended members have the right to appeal the decision within 21 days as per the party’s constitution. The PDP is also expected to hold an investigation and give a fair hearing to the suspended members.

This move by the PDP is expected to send ripples across the political landscape in Nigeria, as the party continues to prepare for the upcoming elections. The PDP is seen as a major opposition party in Nigeria and the suspensions will likely have an impact on the party’s chances in the election.

Overall, the PDP’s decision to suspend members over allegations of anti-party activities is a strong message to party members to stay united and work together towards the common goal of rescuing, rebuilding and redirecting the nation from misrule. The suspensions also serve as a reminder that the party will not tolerate any form of indiscipline or anti-party activities.
