The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, said the PDP National Working Committee took the decision during its extraordinary session on January 5.

He said, “The National Working Committee, in its extraordinary session of the 5th of January 2019, among other things, critically reviewed the petition against the Deputy National Chairman (North) Senator Gamawa Babayo.

“Therefore, in the 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.”
