I stand with Tinubu, PDP suspending me useless: Chimaroke Nnamani
Chimaroke Nnamani (PDP-Enugu) says his suspension from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by the National Working Committee (NWC) is null and void.
Mr Nnamani, who represents Enugu-East at the National Assembly, said this in a statement in Abuja.
“The PDP suspension without hearing is incurably messy and will collapse,” he said.
Mr Nnamani claimed his decision to pitch tent with APC presidential flag bearer Bola Tinubu was caused by PDP’s refusal to comply with its own constitution that key political offices should be rotated between South and North to guarantee harmony, peace, fairness, equity and justice.
“As it is now, there is no fairness, justice and equity in the PDP because both the presidential candidate and the national chairman are from the same region,” explained the former Enugu governor. “I am only exercising my right for freedom of choice and association. On this score, I stand with Tinubu.”
Mr Nnamani urged the leadership of the PDP to put its house in order, declaring that his suspension from the party lacked both moral and constitutional backings.
