23 May 2016, 15:12

Maiduguri -  The Borno State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders’ forum has rejected the suspension of the state chairman of the party, Baba Basharun and other executives in the state, reports Today.

The national leadership of the party had in April suspended Basharu over alleged ant-party activities.

The elders also rejected the outcome of the recent congress of the party in the state describing it as illegal and a violation of the guidelines for the party’s congresses and convention.

The state Secretary of the PDP, Usman Danjuma, who made the announcement at a press conference in Maiduguri, said the stakeholders did not also recognise the last congresses conducted by the party in the state.

He stated that before anybody can be sacked or suspended from the party, he must appear before the disciplinary committee set up by the party machinery.

He insisted that Basharu and others were not invited before they were suspended.

On the congress.  Danjuma said the PDP Congress guidelines stipulate that Congress shall be conducted in an open and transparent option A4-like method, pointing out that in the recent state congress, the rule was not adhered to.
