New PDP Lifts Suspension On Amaechi

The suspension of Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been lifted by the new PDP.
The new PDP said it lifted the suspension because the order was not ratified by the National Executive Committee (NEC) after 30 days of its announcement by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP as contained in the party’s constitution.
Newly elected national youth leader of the splinter PDP, Comrade Timi Frank said:
“Today we have a new chairman in Alhaji Baraje and national leader Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that understand the party’s constitution, this was why the suspension order on Governor Amaechi was lifted in line with the party’s constitution that any suspension must be ratified within 30 days and this was not done. Also the era of imposition of candidates is over there will be open and transparent primaries at all levels”.
When asked if the objective of the ‘new PDP’ was to destabilise the party before moving to the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM), he said, 
“This is far from the truth, there is nothing like that, the new PDP is fighting to save the party from collapse and not to destabilise it and we are sure that with the support of all Nigerians, we will salvage the PDP from destruction.”
