The Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau has suspended eight members of the party for constituting a rival State’s Caretaker Committee.
Mr. John Akans, the committee’s head of media, said in a statement on Saturday that the decision to suspend the erring members was taken at an emergency meeting on Friday evening.
“The working committee, an arm of the Plateau Caretaker Committee at its emergency meeting held Friday evening at the party’s secretariat, reviewed the unfortunate incident that took place at the secretariat.
According to Akans, the group’s attempt was not only laughable and mischievous, but infantile and an act of lawlessness to the extreme which the party could not condone.
The head of media announced that a seven-man disciplinary committee was immediately constituted to look into the activities of the suspended members.
