“That Hon. Awaji-inomek Abiante should be and is hereby suspended from the party for not only promoting factions at the ward level but also belonging to a group under the guise of the party: not being a group provided for in the party’s constitution. Which action is in breach of Sec. 58(l)(j) of the party’s constitution.

“Furthermore, the suspension of Dagomie Abiante became indispensable putting into consideration his involvement in organising, training and equipiing group of members for the purposes of employing violence coercion and other form of intermediation within the party.

Thereby, breaching section 58(l)(k) of the party’s constitution.

“We are committed to the party and determined to weed out bad eggs who are acting as agents of opposition political parties to weaken our party no matter how highly placed and to ensure that our ward remains PDP irrespective of the inducement and threat.”
