PDP Dismisses Alleged Plan to Suspend Jonathan
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed a report that the party planned to suspend former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, over suspected anti-party activities in the last Saturday governorship election in Bayelsa State.
Rather, a member of its National Working Committee (NWC) blamed Governor Seriake Dickson for the defeat of the party in the governorship election won by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Mr. David Lyon.
This is coming as Dickson accused the APC of turning the visit of some of its stalwarts to the former president to a propaganda message to legitimise the electoral robbery he accused it of perpetrating in the state.
The NWC of the party is, however, expected to meet today to review its outing in the Bayelsa and Kogi governorship elections held last Saturday.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, confirmed the meeting to THISDAY in Abuja last night.
However, responding to the insinuation to suspend Jonathan, he said: “We have not even met to discuss what happened in the last governorship election.
“How can somebody or a newspaper be talking about suspending a former president?”
