Former Governor of Enugu State, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, has reacted to the decision of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to suspend him from the party.
The serving Senator, who has thrown his weight behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, ahead of the 2023 general elections, said he was surprised that PDP could suspend him ‘unjustly’ from the party.
He stated this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle in the wee hours of Saturday.
His words: “To All My Teeming Supporters.
” Earlier tonight, the National Publicity Secretaty of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) announced the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP, suspending me from the party. #Chimaroke #ebeano
“I have since been inundated with telephone calls and messages from various persons, seeking my clarification on the matter.
Just like every other person, the decision and announcement of my purported suspension from the PDP came to me as a rude shock and huge surprise
“I was never at anytime notified of any petition or complaint against me or informed of the grounds that formed the decision of the NWC of the PDP to suspend me from the party.
“I was not also invited to any meeting, proceeding or hearing of the NWC of the party where my supposed offence (s) was/were discussed. I was therefore, not afforded the opportunity to make representations on my behalf at any meeting where the proposal and decision to suspend me from the party was made. My right to fair hearing was consequently violated against the clear provisions of the Constitution of the party, especially in disciplinary proceedings. More importantly the Superior Constitution of the FRN.
“I therefore, appeal to all of you to remain calm and law abiding, while we continue our campaign to a hopefully victorious conclusion. To God be the glory.”
PlatinumPost that the PDP had on Friday announced the suspension of Nnamani, alongside others over alleged anti-party activities.
