The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Gwarzo ward, Kano State, has suspended former lawmaker, who represented Kano North at the National Assembly, Senator Bello Hayatu Gwarzo.
TrackNews Online reports that the state chapter had suspended the former State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, following an alleged role played in the crisis that marred the conduct of the party’s Northwest zonal Congress held last week in Kaduna.
The Chairman, PDP Gwarzo ward, Idris Abdullahi Danbaba, and his Secretary, Sanusi Ibrahim An-one, in a jointly signed letter on Wednesday said Gwarzo was suspended for alleged anti-party activities.
The letter said the former lawmaker is suspended from all the activities of the party for six months, adding that the suspension takes immediate effect.
They further said he was suspended based on the recommendation of a disciplinary committee instituted and for failure to appear before the committee to defend allegations leveled against him.
“Based on the recommendation of the disciplinary committee on the allegations of your anti-party activities and your failure to honour the invitation to appear before the committee to hear from you, your conduct is contrary to section 58(1) of the PDP constitution 2017 as amended, therefore the ward executive committee unanimously agreed to suspend you from all the activities of the party of six (6) months.
“This decision takes immediate effect,” the letter reads.
Recall that Gwarzo contested the seat of the National vice chairman North-West of the PDP at the botched congress in Kaduna state.
