Abuja, March 23, 2023 – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday suspended four of its chieftains for supporting the APC during the 2023 general elections.

The four chieftains are a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim; former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose; the Benue State Commissioner for Education, Professor Dennis Ityavyar; and Dr Aslam Aliyu Kaura, a chieftain of the party in Zamfara State.

Debo Ologunagba, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, said in a statement, that the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, had been referred to a disciplinary committee for related infraction.

Ologunagba said the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) suspended the chieftains “pursuant to the provisions of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017)”.

The PDP NWC, however, excluded the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, from the disciplinary action.

Wike had earlier been accused of working with Bola Tinubu of the APC to defeat PDP’s Atiku Abubakar in the February 25 Presidential Election.

The Rivers Governor had, however, approached the Federal High Court to obtain an order restraining the PDP from suspending or expelling him from the party. (GBN)
