PDP suspends former chairman, Tukur for challenging current chairman, Mu’azu

Alhaji Bamanga Tukur

The Members of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, have suspended its former chairman Alhaji Bamanga Tukur for taking a legal action to reclaim his lost seat.

According to a statement released, the party said it sanctioned Mr. Tukur for failing to explore the party's mechanisms for redress, before going to court to challenge his ouster.

Mr. Tukur had earlier asked a court to nullify his resignation in January, saying he was compelled to stand down and also to sack the current chairman, Adamu Mu'azu. But a Federal Court yesterday dismissed his prayers.

PDP has also suspended another member, Aliyu Gurin who supported him in the process, saying they will be on a one month suspension and are also expected to face a disciplinary committee.
