PDP Overturns Decision On Ortom, Fayose, Anyim, Others

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC), led by acting National Chairman Amb. Umar Damagum, has overturned the referral of Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom to the party’s National Disciplinary Committee.

The NWC also lifted the suspensions of former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation Sen. Pius Anyim, and others in a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja on Thursday.

According to Ologunagba, the PDP convened on Thursday and thoroughly examined recent party developments.

He said: “Consequent upon the above, the NWC reverses the referral of Gov. Ortom to the National Disciplinary Committee.

“The NWC in the same vein reverses the suspension of the following under-listed members of our great Party:

“Ibrahim Shema (Katsina State); Fayose (Ekiti State) Anyim (Ebonyi State); Prof. Dennis Ityavyar (Benue State) and Dr Aslam Aliyu (Zamfara State).

“The NWC charges all leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of our Party across the country to be guided by the provisions of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017) as well as the new spirit and necessity of reconciliation, unity and harmony in our Party at this critical time.”
