The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has suspended its Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Gamawa Babayo over what it described as “dereliction of duty and anti-party activity”.
The party confirmed this in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The PDP said the decision to suspend Babayo was taken at the extraordinary session of its NWC last week.
The statement read, “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.”
