The statement read in part: “In the resolution of the SWC of 13th November, 2020, they were suspended from the party for anti-party activity.

“They were accused to planning to destabilize the party by constituting a parallel list of executives, evidence of which have been obtained.

“They are therefore required to appear before the Party’s Disciplinary Committee to defend themselves in the allegation on Friday, 20th November, 2020. Failure to comply with this directive attracts outright explusion from the party.

“Please, accord the necessary action.”

Those suspended include: Senator Michael Ama Nnachi, Senator Obinna Ogba, Hon. Chukwuma Nwazunku, Hon. Sylvester Ogbaga, Hon. Hon. Livinus Makwe, Hon. Chris Usulor, Hon. Victor Aleke among others.
