The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) has lifted the suspension imposed on Mr. Funso Ayeni and Otunba Ajayi Samuel, two of its members in the state of Ekiti.
This was stated in a statement made on Saturday in Abuja by Mr. Debo Ologunagba, the PDP National Publicity Secretary.
According to Ologunagba, the action was in response to the party’s disciplinary committee’s report being adopted, which suggested lifting the suspension.
“By the lifting of the suspension, the status of Ayeni and Samuel as members of the PDP and especially as PDP candidates for Ekiti North Senatorial District and Ekiti North II Federal Constituency respectively in the 2023 general election are fully restored.
“The NWC urged all members, supporters and teeming members of PDP in Ekiti State to remain united and continue to work together for the success of the party at all levels in the 2023 general election,” he said.
The NWC had on Jan. 20 approved the suspension of Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani (Enugu State) and Chief Chris Ogbu (Imo), Ayeni, Samuel and five others from Ekiti State over alleged anti-party activities. (NAN)
