Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Suspends Andy Uba, Chris Uba, Three Others
The cup of the Uba brothers, Sen. Andy Uba and Chris Uba seemed to have become full as the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party wielded the big stick on Thursday by suspending them from the party.
A letter to this effect has been dispatched to the affected party chieftains by the acting National Secretary, Dr. Charles Aderemi Akitoye. Dr. Akintoye was directed to write them on their current status having snubbed the NWC which invited them to come and explain the role they played in the parallel congress that took place in Anambra state.
Dated August 29, the letter stated that, ” the NWC at its 353rd meeting held on Wednesday, 28th August, 2013 reviewed the happenings in Anambra PDP regarding the Anambra Primary Election.
” It was noted that you organized a parallel state Congress which was unauthorized by the party contrary to section 58 (1) a, b, c, f, h and j of the PDP constitution (2012 as amended).
” As a result of this, you were invited to meet with the NWC on Wednesday 28, August, 2013 for fair hearing, but you did not appear.
“In view of the seriousness of the issues involved, you are hereby suspended from the party, and the case referred to the appropriate Disciplinary Committee for further necessary action ” .
However, it was learnt that the affected party chieftains have obtained a Court order stopping the party from taking any disciplinary action against them but the party had served them with the decision before they got the court order.
Apart from the two Ubas, the former chairman of the party in the state, Chief Benji Udeozor and Mrs. Anthonia Nwankwu were also suspended.
