2023 GOVERNORSHIP AND
STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS
JUST IN: PDP suspends Enugu State former governor, Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani, Fayose’s Son, others
This was contained in a statement on Friday by the party’s spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, saying the suspension is with immediate effect.
He explained that the decision to suspend Nnamani is based on allegations of anti-party activities levelled against the ex-governor and was taken by the National Working Committee(NWC).
Also suspended were Ayeni Funso (Ekiti north), Ajijola Lateef Oladimeji (Ekiti central), Emiola Adenike Jennifer (Ekiti south II), Ajayi Babatunde Samuel (Ekiti north II), Olayinka James Olalere (Ekiti central), Akerele Oluyinka (Ekiti north I), and Fayose Oluwajomiloju John (Ekiti central I).
“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has after a very extensive review and consideration of the affairs of our Party in the country, pursuant to the provisions of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017) approved the suspension of Senator Chimaroke Nnamani (Enugu State) and Chief Chris Ogbu (Imo State) with effect from today, Friday, January 20, 2023, over allegations of anti-party activities,” the statement reads.
“The PDP urges all leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of our Party across the country to remain united and focused on the mission of our Party to Rescue, Rebuild and Redirect our nation from misrule.”
Lately, Nnamani, the lawmaker representing Enugu East senatorial district, has publicly expressed his support for Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Recall that his name was at a time included as a member of APC Presidential Campaign Council but was later dropped.
