The Plateau State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Working Committee has suspended eight members of the party for floating a factional state’s Caretaker Committee.
This was made known in a statement on Saturday by the Committee’s head of media, Mr John Akans.
Akans disclosed that the Working Committee decided to suspend the members during its emergency meeting on Friday evening.
According to the Committee’s head of media, the suspension takes immediate effect.
The statement reads in part: “The Working Committee, an arm of the Plateau Caretaker Committee at its emergency meeting on 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 the national leadership of our party, under the leadership of Prince Uche Secondus.
“The state leadership of the party frowned at these decedents and therefore approved their immediate suspension from PDP.
“Seven of the affected people are Nandom Penap Exodus, Godwin W. Bedir, Akims Mamot, Mrs Asabe Dareng, Nathaniel Dakas, Jacob Dashe, and Alhaji Kabiru Musa.”
