PDP Group Rejects Suspension Of Ndudi Elumelu, 6 Others
Youths Movement of Peoples Democratic Party in South South has rejected the suspension of Hon. Ndidi Elumelu and six members of the party describing the suspension as illegal which cannot be acceptable.
The group also warned the National Working Committee of the party not to embark on the journey that will send the party into chaos.
The rejection of Elumelu and six others suspension was made known in a statement signed by the Coordinator of the group , Comrade Tony Ayaegbunem and made available to newsmen .
The PDP group vowed to reject any attempt by self seeking individuals in the party to impose Hon. Kingsley Chinda as Minority leader of the House.
According to the statement, the PDP Constitution is clear on procedure to suspend any member of the party therefore the purported suspension of Elumelu and members of the party cannot stand because the party is bigger than individuals.
The group wondered how could a party which is seeking for justice in the court of law suspend their members without fair hearing and recourse to the party’s constitution.
The group also warmed the party to reverse its decision on suspension of lawmakers in order not to create chaos in the party and among PDP Honorable members who elected Ndidi Elumelu as their leader.
The statement reads,” it is disheartening that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has not learnt anything from their previous crisis which nearly collapse the main opposition party in the country.
“The recent suspension of Hon Ndidi Elumelu , Wole Oke, Lynda Ikpeazu, Anayo Edwin, Gideon Gwani, Toby Okechukwu and Adekoya Abdul-Majid for kicking against the party’s position on Minority Principal officers is illegal and cannot stand in court of law.
“The attempt by self seeking individuals to impose Hon. Kingsley Chinda as Minority leader will not only bring set back but, may collapse the former ruling party. Chinda is not popular among the opposition lawmakers, imposing him on PDP caucus will spell doom for the party.”
