PDP suspends Borno chairman for alleged anti-party activities (NAN)
This is contained in a communique at the end of an emergency meeting signed by state PDP legal adviser,
“The chairman is hereby suspended for a period of one month, while his deputy, takes over with immediate effect.’’
He said that the chairman was found to have been involved in anti-party activities.
“Apart from breach of the 2017 party’s constitution, Section 58, as amended, by not calling a meeting, financial misappropriation and recklessness with funds of the party, Gadama and some of his close allies have been involved in anti-party activities, which has denied the party chance of winning any elective positions in recent times in the state.
“Therefore, after extensive deliberation today, we came out with 3-Resolutions; pursuant to the powers bestowed on this meeting by Section 53(3), Zanna Gadama is hereby suspended with immediate effect for a period of one month pending further investigation.
“Secondly, the state deputy chairman should immediately assume duty in acting capacity during the period of the suspension..
He added: “The people of Borno today are in dire need of good governance and are looking up to the PDP as the only party that will rescue them from the clutches of poverty, joblessness and injustice.”
The meeting was attended by members of the State Working Committee (SWC), chairmen and secretaries from all the 27 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state among others.
