3 min read

Group od people called Youths Movement of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the south-south has explained the suspension of Hon. Ndidi Elumelu and six House of Representatives members of the party as illegal. The group told the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party not to start a journey that will put the party into a problem. In a statement sent to journalists on Saturday, July 6 and signed by their coordinator, Comrade Tony Ayaegbunem, the group has clearly stated that they will reject any attempt to impose Hon. Kingsley Chinda as minority leader of the House. The group said that the PDP constitution is clear on steps to follow to suspend any member of the party, saying that the deliberate suspension of Elumelu and others can’t stand because the party is more than any personality.
The group wondered how a party seeking justice in the court of law can suspend its members without any tangible reason. The group also warned the party to cancel the suspension of lawmakers in order not to create division in the party and among PDP members who supported Ndidi Elumelu as their leader. Their exact statement: “It is disheartening that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has not learned anything from their previous crisis which nearly collapses 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 a 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.
The PDP had suspended Elumelu two days after he was named minority leader by the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila. The party in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, announced the suspension on Friday, July 5. The party also announced the suspension of six other House members.
