The State leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau has suspended eight members of the party for constituting a rival State’s Caretaker Committee.
This was made public by the state committee’s head of media Mr John Akans, in a statement on Saturday where he said that the decision to suspend the erring members was taken at an emergency meeting on Friday May 15th.
“The working committee, an arm of the Plateau Caretaker Committee at its emergency meeting held Friday evening at the party’s secretariat, reviewed the unfortunate incident that took place at the secretariat.
“Some group of rascals, mischievously constituted themselves into a caretaker committee, which is an affront to national leadership of our party, under the leadership of Prince Uche Secondus.
Speaking further, Mr. John lamented that the group’s attempt was not only laughable and mischievous, but infantile and an act of lawlessness to the extreme which the party could not condone.
He also announced that a seven-man disciplinary committee was immediately constituted to look into the activities of the suspended members.
Lastly, the party called on members across the state to forget the unfortunate incident and continue to work together for the progress and victory of the party. (NAN)
