The Youths Movement of People Democratic Party in South South has described the suspension of Hon. Ndudi Elumelu and six members of the party as illegal.
They called on the National Working Committee of the party not to embark on what will send the party into Chaos.
The group in a statement signed by their Coordinator , Comrade Tony Ayaegbunem, vowed to reject any attempt by self seeking individuals in the party to impose Hon. Kingsley Chinda as Minority leader of the House.
The group said that the party’s (PDP) Constitution is clear on procedure to suspend any member of the party.
The group also called on the party to reverse its action on suspension of lawmakers in order not to cause dissension and divide within the party members in support of Ndidi Elumelu.
They went on to say in the statement that: “it is disheartening that 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.”
