The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced the suspension of its Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Gamawa Babayo.
According to a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, the decision was made by its National Working Committee last week.
He said Babayo was axed over allegations of “dereliction of duty and anti-party activity”.
“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 statement states.
However, there were no details of what constituted “dereliction of duty”.
