Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has been suspended from the PDP.
Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, Pius Anyim, a former senate president, Prof. Dennis Ityavyar, and Aslam Aliyu have all been suspended by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) due to alleged anti-party activities.
The development was detailed in a statement released on Thursday by Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national publicity secretary.
The statement noted that, “the suspension, which takes effect on Thursday, arrived at after an extensive review of the affairs of the party, pursuant to the provisions of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017).”
The main opposition party also referred the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, to the National Disciplinary Committee over his reported involvement in anti-party activities.
“The PDP urges all leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of our party across the country to remain united and focused at this critical time,” the statement added.
Fayose had blamed stakeholders and politicians for a majority of the problems facing the country currently.
“There is a lot wrong with Nigeria. Since 1979, nothing has changed. I blamed the majority of the problems on the stakeholders and politicians.
“When you asked (Muhammadu) Buhari in 2015, If you lose the election, would you concede defeat?’ he said ‘I would win’. He never conceived he would lose.
“I told you the senators, House of Reps members are returning to the National Assembly. The system is sick. Nobody is protecting it.
“Rather than blame the Independent National Electoral Commission, we need to draw a red line like the army. Nothing was wrong in the elections,” Fayose said.
