PDP youth leader wants ex-Niger gov suspended

The Northwest zonal leader of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) National Youth Vanguard, Hon. Ibrahim Ahmadu, has called for the immediate suspension of former governor of Niger state, Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu from the party over alleged anti-party activities.

Addressing reporters in Kaduna on Monday, the PDP youth leader said Dr. Babangida Aliyu betrayed the party in 2015 when he worked against the election of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the interest of the opposition party.

Ahmadu added that it is time for the Board of Trustees and National Working Committee of the party to act to stop the former governor from doing more harm to the party both at the state and national levels.

He explained that the recent rancour between Dr. Babangida Aliyu and the Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike is a diversionary plan by the former governor and his supporters to turn the party’s leadership focus off the real issue on ground.

“I can confidently inform the loyal members of our party that Dr Aliyu betrayed us and worked for the ruling APC during the 2015 general elections. We as the youths therefore urge the party BoT to suspend the former governor in order to bring trust and respect back to the party,” he said.
