Plateau PDP Suspends Chairman, Deputy

Hon. Damishi Sango, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman in Plateau State has been suspended alongside the Deputy Chairman, Hon. Amos Gombi Goyol.

It is understood by Naija News that the two party leaders were suspended over alleged diversion of Presidential campaign funds and N9.8 million meant for Internally Displaced Persons during the 2019 general elections.

The Publicity Secretary of the Party in Plateau state, Hon. John Akans, who was flanked by members of the State Working Committee briefed journalists at the party secretariat on Wednesday, that the suspension was with immediate effect.

He added further that the Party’s Vice Chairman Northern Zone, Hon. Chris Hassan, was to take over the leadership of the party as Acting State Chairman, immediately.

“The Party Chairman Hon. Damishi Sango and his Deputy Hon. Amos Gombi Goyol have been suspended based on the reasons that the resources sent to the State for Presidential elections were not accounted for by the Chairman aided by the Deputy Chairman.

“The chairman concealed the amount sent by the Presidential Campaign Committee and created a fraudulent unseen template used as sharing formula unknown to the State Party structure.

“About N5 million raised and saved by the party to help Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to help relieve their pains were also not accounted for up till this moment. No mention has been made of the stated funds and it is worthy to note that the Deputy Chairman is the chairman Committee on IDPs for the party.

“Also, about N4.8 million money meant for PDP Plateau State retreat was equally not accounted for by the Chairman and the Deputy Chairman.

“Due to the Highhandedness of the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the party has caused the party to plunge into confusion. High disregard to elders, critical stakeholders and members of the SEC as their advises and decision no longer relevant to the Chairman and the Deputy.”

According to reports by sunnewsonline, the State PDP Campaign Council has also been dissolved with immediate effect and the chairman and other campaign council members urged to return party property that is in their possession.

Furthermore, Akans stated that a disciplinary committee has been set up in line with the party’s constitution to investigate the suspended Chairman and Deputy with a view to recovering party’s funds in their disposal.
