‘Bamanga wants to expel Baraje, Oyinlola from PDP’

The Abubakar Kawu Baraje led new Peoples Democratic Paty (nPDP) yesterday raised an alarm saying four of its leaders including its chairman and the reinstated national secretary of the PDP, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola would be expelled from the party tomorrow.
The nPDP leaders namely; Baraje, Oyinlola, Sam Jaja and Ibrahim Kazaure are currently under suspension from the party and have been asked to appear before the disciplinary committee of the party to defend themselves against charges of engaging in anti party activities.
The new PDP in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, said the aim of asking Oyinlola and the three other leaders of the faction to appear before the disciplinary committee of the party is to expel them from the party.
He said, “Tukur’ desperation to illegally expel the G4 is yet another manifestation of the impunity which started with the unjust, unfair and unconstitutional dissolution the Adamawa State Executive Committee of the party, followed by series of other unjust acts of impunity including the dissolution of the Rivers State PDP Executive and the suspension of the Governor of Sokoto State for allegedly not receiving Alhaji Tukur’s phone call.”
The faction however maintained its position that its members will not appear before the committee saying the committee is illegal.
The nPDP said Tukur has vowed that nobody can force him to reinstate Prince Oyinlola as the national secretary of the PDP as well as stop him from ensuring that the four leaders of the faction currently on suspension are thrown out of the party.
It called on the founding fathers of the party to intervene to save the party from collapse.
“We are forced to cry out because of the unbelievable silence of our revered party elders in the face of the chain of developments instigated by factional national chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, which has put the party at the edge of the precipice.
 “We therefore call on our revered party elders and other well-meaning Nigerians to rise up with one voice and one purpose to put a stop to all forms of impunity and injustice by the group that parades itself as the national leadership of the PDP located at Wadata Plaza in Abuja. The battle should not be left to the New PDP alone because, as the ruling party since Nigeria’s return to democracy in May 1999, the country’s fate is also tied to the fate of PDP,” the nPDP stated.
