Withdraw My Suspension Within The Next 48-Hour – Shema Threatens PDP




ALGON Fund Fraud: Katsina Gov't Withdraws Suit Against Ex-Gov, Shema

Former Katsina State governor, Ibrahim Shehu Shema, has asked the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to withdraw the suspension slammed on him within 48 hours.

Naija News recalls that the PDP had referred governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state to a Disciplinary Committee and suspended Ayo Fayose, Shema, and Anyim Pius Anyim, among others.

In a letter dated March 24, 2023, and addressed to the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, Shema said if his suspension was not rescinded the PDP leadership should consider him out of the party effective from Saturday, March 25, 2023.

Shema also asked the NWC to disband what he called the “illegal caretaker committee ” of the PDP in Katsina state and recognise the “duly elected” executive committee in the state.

The letter read: “I cannot therefore continue to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under Dr. Iyorchia Ayu’s laws who is duty bound to preserve, protect and defend our constitution within his limited powers.

“It is in the height of these developments that I make the following appeals: Rescind the National Working Committee (NWC) decision of unlawful dissolution of Katsina State duly elected Executive Committee and allow them to complete their tenure and disband the purported caretaker committee similar to which so many court decisions in the land have illegalised.

“Rescind the National Working Committee (NWC) decision of my suspension as a member of our party within the next Forty-Eight (48) hours.
