PDP Suspends Bamanga Tukur For Anti-Party Activities
The National Working Committee, NWC, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has suspended former national chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, and Aliyu Abuba Gurin, for a period of one month.
This was announced through a statement signed by the national legal adviser of the party, Victor Kwom, following decisions reached during the NWC’s meeting held on Wednesday, where it reviewed recent national developments as they affect the party.
Among other issues, the NWC deliberated on the court case instituted against the national chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, by Tukur.
Tukur and Gurin were accused of taking the party to court without first exploring the party’s internal mechanism of redress and for attempting to stop the forthcoming national convention where the party’s presidential candidate will be nominated.
“The NWC hereby suspends Dr. Bamanga Tukur and Aliyu Abuba Gurin for one month and refers them to the National Disciplinary Committee for infringing on section 58(1)(a)( b)( h)( l) of the PDP Constitution 2012( as amended),” the statement said.
