PDP Leaders Demands For Obasanjo’s Suspension From The Party


Choi!, so papa Iyabo has been in PDP party all along and was canvassing for APC?... Baba Iyabo daris God o(in mama peace tone)...Lol.
PDP leaders have demanded for the suspension of former president of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo from their party. The party leaders came to conclusion to suspense him after verbals attacks against the President and openly canvassing for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
 A member of the NWC said Obasanjo’s activities could attract suspension – in line with Article 57(3) of the PDP Constitution 2012(as amended). The NWC member said:


“No matter the situation, you do not discredit and abandon your party for another. Obasanjo cannot be a bonafide member of PDP and be attacking the party’s presidential candidate. “The preponderance of opinion is that we should damn the consequences by suspending him from the party. But some are saying we should ignore him.
 “To most PDP members, we should ask him to go because he has even reduced his involvement in PDP to ward activities. Do not forget, he was not a founding member of the PDP. “If Obasanjo’s case comes to NWC, we will look at it on merit and treat as such.”
“Article 57 (3) of the party’s constitution, 2012(as amended) says, “The Working Committee, at any level of the party, and the executive committee (at the Ward Level) may, after preliminary hearings, suspend a member from the party for a period not exceeding one month, during which period the member so suspended shall lose his right to contest any election, and shall be referred to the appropriate disciplinary committee.” “Article 57 (4) specifically states that “where an allegation is made against a member of the party, the disciplinary committee shall inform the member in writing of the allegations made against him or her.”

Meanwhile  President Jonathan, who is the leader of the party, is yet to yield  to the demand of his PDP leaders.
