PDP lifts suspension on Elumelu, six others

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lifted the suspension placed on the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, and six other House of Reps members in July 2019.

In a statement on Thursday by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the six other lawmakers are Wole Oke, Lynda Ikpeazu, Anayo Edwin, Gideon Gwani, Toby Okechukwu and Adekoya Addul-majid.

He said that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party lifted the suspension based on the recommendations of various committees constituted on issues relating to their suspension.

“The party charges the lawmakers to be loyal to the party and obey its directives in line with its constitution and vision of its founding fathers.

“In the same vein, the party maintains that it continues to recognise the PDP Caucus of the House of Representatives as led by Rep. Kingsley Chinda,” he said.

He advised all lawmakers elected on the platform of the party to continue to participate in the activities of the caucus.

PDP had in July 2019 suspended the seven lawmakers for anti-party activities, particularly their roles in the selection of the Minority Leader in the House.
