Breaking News: PDP Suspends Sokoto State Governor, Aliyu Magatakarda Wammako

June 5, 2013

In what looks like a sledge hammer on its members, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the People Democratic Party (PDP) today suspended Governor Aliyu Wammako of Sokoto State from the party.
In statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisah Metuh, said; “the National Working Committee (NWC) at its 338th meeting held on Wednesday, June5, 2013, extensively discussed the state party across the nation and its members as well as the repeated breaches of disregard to the party’s constitution by His Excellency, Dr. Aliyu Magatakarda  Wammako, the executive governor of Sokoto State.”

According it also read thus; the NWC notes that on several occasions, Governor Aliyu Magatakarda  Wammako had ignored invitations and lawful directives of the NWC in this regard and has continued to show complete apathy to the affairs of the party and contempt  to an organ of the party.”
Speaking further in their statement the party said; “ consequent upon the refusal of the Governor to honour yet another invitation by the NWC to appear before it today Wednesday, June 5, 2013 without reason, the committee, in exercise of the powers conferred  by Articles 57(3) (57) 7, 58 1(C), (h), (f), and 59(1), (2), hereby suspends the Executive Governor of Sokoto State Dr. Aliyu Magatakarda  Wammako,  as a member of the party refers the matter to the appropriate disciplinary committee of the party.”
