Imo PDP kicks against suspension of two lawmakers

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo has kicked against the suspension of two of its lawmakers by the party’s caucus in the state House of Assembly.

This is contained in a statement signed by the state Chairman of the party, Mr Charles Ugwuh, and read to newsmen in Owerri on Monday by the party’s Secretary, Mr Ray Emeana.

The party described the suspension as unlawful, hence demanded that it be overturned, while the affected members should be reinstated with immediate effect.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Minority Leader of the house, Mr Anyadike Nwosu, and the Minority Whip, Mr Philip Ejiiogu, both of PDP, were suspended for alleged “unparliamentary conduct” on July 8.

But, according to PDP, it is unconstitutional and unacceptable to suspend a principal officer of any legislative house without fair hearing.

“We will remind you that some days ago, the Speaker of the house announced the suspension of six elected representatives of Imo people in the house, including two from the PDP, which is currently in the minority.
