The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) has said the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon Ndudi Elumelu, and others remain suspended.
The NWC said the suspension order placed on Elumelu and six others has not been rescinded as it is yet to receive the submission and recommendations of the investigative committee set up to look into the problem.
The party had suspended suspended Elumelu, Wole Oke, Lynda Ikpeazu, Anayo Edwin, Gideon Gwadi, Toby Okechukwu and Adekoya Abdul-Majid sometimes in July 2019 for a month following their insubordination in respect of its arrangement for the minority leadership of the house.
The party national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement said it needed to clarify issues in the light of public enquiries and conflicting reports on the position of the leadership of our great party as relates to the minority leadership of the House of Representatives.
The statement read: “The National Working Committee (NWC) hereby clarifies that it has not yet received any report from the Board of Trustees (BoT) concerning the outcome of the five-member committee it set up to intervene on the contentious matter.
“Consequently, the NWC maintains that it has not taken any decision to review its subsisting stance on the minority leadership of the House of Representatives.
“The NWC, therefore, urges critical stakeholders, party members and the general public to completely disregard any report to the contrary”.
