PDP Can't Suspend Fayose, Ortom Won’t Appear Before Disciplinary Panel - Wike

KanyiDaily recalls that the PDP had suspended Fayose and others, adding that Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, would appear before the National Disciplinary Committee over his involvement in anti-party activities.

Reacting to the development while speaking on Thursday night in Port Harcourt, Wike said the PDP led by Iyorchia Ayu cannot suspend Fayose because the chairman is guilty of the same allegation when the party abandoned zoning under his leadership.

The governor also said that Ortom would not appear before the PDP national disciplinary committee, stressing that the party’s decision is the “height of all insults and we will not take it”.

He said, “Ayu and Sam Anyanwu, the national secretary, and other members of the NWC cannot suspend Ayo Fayose not to talk about referring governor Ortom to a national disciplinary committee.

“Governor Ortom who has stood firm for the unity of this country, governor Ortom who has come out openly to say that Nigeria must be one is not the type you will say you’ll refer to that your kangaroo committee.

“If there is any person deserving suspension it should be you (Ayu), who played anti-party by refusing to obey the constitution of the party on the zoning of political offices as is required. So, whoever tells you can suspend people, please tell the person that he is not serious.

“If you are talking of anti-party, it is you who could not even deliver your unit, deliver your ward that is involved. Because of the fraudulent activities you are involved in, people have lost hope in you. That is why you cannot win your unit, win your ward.

“You cannot cage any of us (G5). Ortom will not appear before any of your so-called disciplinary committees. Ayodele Fayose will also never appear before any disciplinary committee.”

KanyiDaily recalls that the senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, Chimaroke Nnamani had also dumped the PDP after he lost his bid to return to the Senate.
