PDP NWC invalidates suspension of former Niger governor


The  National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has  invalidated and nullified the  purported suspension of former Governor of Niger state, Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu, describing it as spurious.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Kola Ologbondiyan stated this in a statement made available to journalists in Minna Wednesday.


The party expressed dismay over what it called “some spurious claims by some misguided persons, of a purported suspension of some leaders of our great party from Niger state”.
He said, “The national leadership cautions those behind the claims to desist from such, particularly, in misguiding some party officials to attempt to assume situations that are beyond their statutory powers*.


The PDP National Working Committee emphasized that the powers and functions of all organs of the party at all levels are as clearly spelt out in the constitution and should be strictly adhered to.


He said, “The provisions of our party’s constitution is very clear about suspension of the members of National Executive Committee (NEC) and as such, we caution those indulging themselves in such lawless activities to desist henceforth”.


The National Working Committee (NWC) therefore called for calm and urge all  leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of  PDP in Niger state to remain united, adding that “they should  continue to work together and resist attempts by enemies of our party to distract us from the task ahead.”.
