The Peoples Democratic Party has suspended Chimaroke Nnamani and several others including ex-governor, Ayodele Fayose’s son, as a member of the party.
The suspension, which is effective from Friday, is based on allegations of anti-party activities levelled against Mr Nnamani, a statement from the party said.
The suspension was taken by the National Working Committee(NWC) of the party according to its national spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba.
The NWC also suspended Fayose Oluwajomiloju, son of a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose; Chris Ogbu -Imo State; Ayeni Funso -Ekiti State, among others.
Mr Nnamani, a former governor of Enugu State, is the current senator representing Enugu East on the platform of the PDP.
He is also the senatorial candidate of the party for Enugu East in the forthcoming 25th February national assembly elections.
Despite being a chieftain of the PDP, he has been canvassing support for the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu.
Fayose’s son, Olawajomiloju, is the candidate of the PDP for Ekiti Central Federal Constituency.
Mr Fayose is believed to be opposed to Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the PDP. But unlike Mr Nnamani, he has not been campaigning openly for Mr Tinubu or any other presidential candidate.
