PDP suspends Secondus’ deputy over ‘anti-party’ activities


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced the suspension of its Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Gamawa Babayo.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement on Monday night that the decision was reached at the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) extra-ordinary meeting held on the 5th of January, 2019.
The party said the meeting, among other things, critically reviewed the petition against Babayo and found him wanting.
“The NWC found merit in the petition on allegation of dereliction of duty and anti-party activity as contained in Section 58 (1) e, f, g, h of the PDP Constitution.
“Therefore, in exercise of section 29 (2) a, b and c, the NWC hereby invokes Section 59 (1) d of the constitution of the PDP on the Deputy National Chairman (North) and accordingly suspends him from the party immediately,” the party said.
