Sheriff overrules suspension of party members in Abia

03 August 2016, 12:18

Abuja - The Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff-led People’s Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday overturned the suspension of party members in Abia.

This is contained in a statement jointly released to newsmen by Sheriff and his National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo, in Abuja

Sheriff and his scribe described the suspension of Chidi Nwosu (Umuahia South) Emeka Ejiogu (Umuahia North) and Chukwuemeka Osoagbaka (Ikwuano) as a witch-hunt.

”The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP has been drawn to the purported suspension of some of our party members by the Abia State Chapter.

”The NWC frowns at a situation where party members are being victimised because of their loyalty to the leadership at the national level.

”It is important that all organs of the party must respect party members’ wish to associate with other members irrespective of various affiliations.
”The crisis going on in the party is an internal matter and is in the process of resolution.

” It is worthy to note that party members in Abia have not committed any anti-party activity.

”In the light of this, the NWC hereby directs the Abia state chapter to immediately rescind the purported suspensions and show, within 48 hours, evidence of its compliance to the NWC.

”Failure to comply will attract stiff sanctions in accordance with the constitution of the PDP,” they said.
