The Peoples Democratic Party on Monday announced the suspension of four key members of the New PDP for anti-party activities.
The four are a former Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, the New PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Baraje; the Deputy National Chairman, Dr. Sam Jaja; and the Deputy National Vice-Chairman (North-West), Amb. Ibrahim Kazaure.
Their suspension came barely six days after the Court of Appeal reinstated Oyinlola as the PDP national secretary. It also happened on a day the New PDP vowed to ensure that the Bamanga Tukur-led National Working Committee of the PDP was served the court order to pave the way for the ex-governor’s return as the national secretary of the party.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, at a news conference in Abuja, said the suspension of the four politicians was to serve as a deterrent to others.
