Former Govs Kwankwaso, Aliyu not suspended – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied the purported suspension of former Kano Governor Senator Musa Kwankwaso and his Niger counterpart, Dr Babangida Aliyu.

Aliyu and Kwankwaso were purportedly suspended by factions of the PDP Niger and Kano respectively.

But a statement by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday debunked their suspensions.

Ologbondiyan stressed provisions of the Constitution of the PDP are very clear on the suspension of a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC), if and when such occasion arises, and cautioned those behind the misleading claims to desist henceforth.

The party said: “The PDP strongly cautions that it will not accept such reckless adventure by such misguided individuals, which its notes, is capable of destabilizing our party and bringing it to public disrepute.

“Similarly, the PDP states that the former Niger State governor, Dr Babangida Aliyu, has not been suspended by the party as mischievously published in certain quarters.

“Our party frowns at such fabrications aimed at subverting the stability of our party and triggering disagreements and suspicions within our ranks.

“The PDP urges our leaders and teeming members in Kano and Niger states to be at alert, resist distractions and continue to work together as Nigerians earnestly look up to the PDP for solution and direction at this critical time.”
