For alleged anti-party activities, a former Enugu State Governor, Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani and others have been suspended from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) with immediate effect.

Others on whose party’s hammer have fallen include Chief Chris Ogbu (Imo State) and seven members in Ekiti State including ex- Governor Ayodele Fayose’s brother, Oluwajomiloju John Fayose.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP announced this in a statement signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja, late on Friday, a copy of which was obtained by Persecondnews.

It also announced the dissolution of the Ekiti State Executive Committee and the setting up of a caretaker committee to oversee the day-to-day running of party affairs in the state.

“ 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.

“In the same vein, the NWC has approved the suspension of the underlisted party members in Ekiti State also with effect from today, Friday, January 20, 2023, over allegations of anti-party activities.

“The suspended members in Ekiti State are;

2. Ajijola Lateef Oladimeji -(Ekiti Central)

Others are;

1. Emiola Adenike Jennifer -(Ekiti South II)

2. Ajayi Babatunde Samuel -(Ekiti North II)

3. Olayinka James Olalere -(Ekiti Central)

4. Akerele Oluyinka -(Ekiti North I)

5. Fayose Oluwajomiloju John -(Ekiti Central I)

“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,” Ologunagba said.

Meanwhile, the NWC has also approved the appointment of Arch. Sadiq Obanoyen as the Chairman of the PDP Ekiti State Caretaker Committee.

Ologunagba said: “Following the recent developments in the Ekiti State Chapter of our great Party, the NWC after careful deliberations and extensive consultations, on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) and pursuant to Sections 29(2)(b) and 31(2)(e) of the Constitution of the PDP (as amended in 2017), has dissolved the PDP Ekiti State Executive Committee with immediate effect.
