A press statement signed by the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Debo Ologunagba has it that the party has wielded the big stick against arring members of the party in various states, especially Enugu and Ekiti states, where former Governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East senatorial district in the upper chamber, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani as a member of the party.

The suspension, which takes effect today, Friday, is based on allegations of anti-party activities levelled against him, going by the statement from the party said.

The suspension was taken by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party according to its national spokesperson, as also Fayose Oluwajomiloju, son of a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, one Chris Ogbu in Imo State, Ayeni Funso in Ekiti State were among those suspended.

Ken Nnamani, a former governor of Enugu State, is the current senator representing Enugu East on the platform of the PDP, also the senatorial candidate of the party for Enugu East in the forthcoming 25th February national assembly elections and despite being a chieftain of the PDP, he has been canvassing support for the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu.

Ayo Fayose’s son, Olawajomiloju, is the candidate of the PDP for Ekiti Central Federal Constituency, whose father is believed to be opposed to Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the PDP, but unlike Nnamani, he has not been campaigning openly for Bola Tinubu or any other presidential candidate.
