The National Working Committee (NWC) of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday announced the suspension of the party’s Chairman in Borno, Alhaji Baba Basharu. This is contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja.
The statement said that Basharu was suspended after preliminary hearing on reports of his various activities inimical to the progress of the party, especially flouting the provisions of article 58 (1), (b), (c), (f) and (h) of the PDP Constitution. “This is in line with the relevant provisions of the PDP Constitution on disciplinary procedures. Accordingly, Alhaji Baba Basharu, has been referred to the National Disciplinary Committee for appropriate action in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP,’’ it said.
