Suspension: In the interests of the PDP, the NWC should reverse its decision. – Anyim



Suspension: In the interests of the PDP, the NWC should reverse its decision. - Anyim

Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim, GCON, former Senate President, called on the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Working Committee, NWC, on Friday to reverse the decision it made against some of its members in the interest of the Party.

Recall that the NWC had through its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Debo Ologunagba, suspended Ayodele Fayose (Ekiti State); Sen. Pius Anyim (Ebonyi State); Prof. Dennis Ityavyar (Benue State); and Dr. Aslam Aliyu (Zamfara State) while it referred Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, to the party’s National Disciplinary Committee to answer to charges of anti-party activities levelled against him.

Anyim claimed that “many members, intentionally and proudly, worked against the party, including members of the NWC,” and that “it is a display of innate cowardice for the NWC to choose soft targets to suspend and fear those who daily demonise them.”

The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, disclosed this in a statement, saying that the “NWC may wish to know that I am proud to have supported the APC Gubernatorial candidate in Ebonyi State to win the election because that conforms to the equitable formular in Ebonyi State.”

“Having watched Mr. Debo Ologunagba read a press statement with the above title on behalf of the PDP’s National Working Committee (NWC), I have the following observations and comments to make:

“To put it mildly, the NWC’s action is disappointing.”

Rather than seeking to further divide the party by shifting blames, I thought the NWC’s concern now would be how to conduct a thorough self-examination on why they performed so poorly in the 2023 elections.

“It smacks of arrogance for the NWC to put on a brave face instead of expressing regret and being sober for leading the party to such a colossal loss in the 2023 general elections, thereby dash the hopes and expectations of the party’s supporters.”

“In the case of Ebonyi State, the NWC imposed a candidate from the zone of the sitting Governor, which was contrary to the state’s zoning formular.” Every attempt to persuade the NWC to see the light fell on deaf ears.

“On the day of the party’s presidential rally in Ebonyi State, I informed Dr. Ayu that I would be boycotting the event because I could not support the candidate they imposed on Ebonyi State.” Dr. Ayu took no action. He didn’t mind that I didn’t attend the Ebonyi rally.”
