Former Minister of Labour and Productivity under ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, Mr. Husaini Akwanga’s daughter, Zainab Akwanga has been listed among those recently expelled by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Ward 2 Ward Initiative which has its headquarters in Abuja.

The PDP group rising from its emergency meeting resolved that Zainab and others listed below were found guilty of anti-party activities adding that they should henceforth be considered as non-members, following their expulsion

A statement signed by Shekulomaso Kamal Karka, National coordinator; and Ikechukwu Ojukwu, National Legal Adviser of the PDP Ward 2 Ward respectively, said that the expulsion of the members became necessary so as to maintain the integrity of the organization.

Apart from Zainab, other expelled members are: Hajara Husseini, Vivian Habitat and Thelma Nkanu, Wales Taha, Mceva Temofe, Joan Hassan Hyatt and Elizabeth A. Aikhomo.

“They were expelled because anti-party activities they have been carrying out and which has brought disrepute to our organization,” the statement added.

The statement warned members of the public not to have any dealing with the aforementioned personalities relating to the group or the party.

“Anybody or group of people who does any business in the name of PDP with any of these expelled members does it at his or her own risk,” the statement said.
