The group in a statement signed by Comrade
Tony Ayaegbunem and made available to newsmen wondered how could a party which is seeking for justice in the court of law suspend their members without fair hearing and recourse to the party’s constitution.
According to the statement, the PDP Constitution is clear on procedure to suspend any member of the party adding therefore that the purported suspension of Elumelu and members of the party cannot stand because the party is bigger than individuals.
The group also warmed the party to reverse its decision on suspension of the lawmakers in order not to create chaos in the party and among PDP Honorable members who elected Ndidi Elumelu as their leader.
The statement reads,” it is disheartening that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has not learnt anything from their previous crisis which nearly collapse the main opposition party in the country.
” The recent suspension of Hon Ndidi Elumelu , Wole Oke, Lynda Ikpeazu, Anayo Edwin, Gideon Gwani, Toby Okechukwu and Adekoya Abdul-Majid for kicking against the party’s position on Minority Principal officers is illegal and cannot stand in court of law.
” The attempt by self seeking individuals to impose Hon. Kingsley Chinda as Minority leader will not only bring set back but, may collapse the former ruling party. Chinda is not popular among the opposition lawmakers, imposing him on PDP caucus will spell doom for the party.”
