My suspension by PDP ill-motivated, Nnamani insists

A former Enugu State Governor Chimaroke Nnamani has insisted that his suspension by the Peoples Democratic Party, National Working Committee was ill-conceived and unwarranted.

Senator Nnamani also stated that his right to fair hearing was violated because he was neither informed of any complaints against him nor was he invited on the matter.

The PUNCH reported how the PDP announced the suspension of the senator representing Enugu East, alongside other chieftains of the party in Ekiti, Enugu and Imo states over allegations of anti-party activities, which was effective on January, 20, 2023.

The lawmaker in a statement signed on Monday and made available to journalists in Abuja said, “The PDP ‘Penkelemesi’ suspension without hearing is incurably messy and will collapse.

“My decision to pitch tent with Asawaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was necessitated by the PDP’s refusal to comply with its own constitution to wit; that key political offices should at all times be rotated between the South and North to guarantee harmony, peace, fairness, equity and justice.

“As it is now, there is no fairness, justice and equity in the PDP because both the presidential candidate and the National Chairman are from the same region.”

Commenting further, the lawmaker noted that he was exercising his right for freedom of choice and association, asserting that he stands with the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Tinubu.

Going forward, the lawmaker advised PDP leadership to address the issues within the party maintaining that his suspension by the NWC is defective in both moral and constitutional supports.
