Ortom won’t appear before Disciplinary Committee – Nyesom Wike tells PDP

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has no right to suspend former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, over allegations of anti-party activities.

The PDP, in a statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, had sanctioned Fayose; ex-Senate President, Pius Anyim; Prof Dennis Ityavyar; and Aslam Aliyu for “anti-party activities”

The suspension took effect from Thursday, March 23, 2023.

Briefing journalists in Port Harcourt on Thursday, March 23, Wike argued that the party’s NWC does not also have the power to refer Ortom to a disciplinary committee over allegations of anti-party activities.

Wike said the Benue governor “will not appear before any so-called disciplinary committee.”

According to Wike, the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, is the one who should be suspended for “refusing to obey the constitution of the party on zoning of political positions.”

He added that “Ayu also failed to deliver his polling unit and political ward during the just-concluded general elections, alleging that Ayu has just begun “the mother of all political wars”.
