PDP Suspends Ubah, Sends Kashamu To Disciplinary C’ttee





The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday wielded the big stick against the Senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu and one of its aspirants in the Anambra State governorship election, Ifeanyi Ubah, over alleged acts of indiscipline.
The national publicity secretary of PDP, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the party suspended Ubah for one month for his refusal to reply a query over disparaging comments he was said to have made against the party’s leadership.
Eyes Of Lagos gathered that, He added that the party further referred Ubah’s case to its disciplinary committee headed by Chief Tom Ikimi for further action.
In the case of Kashamu, Adeyeye  said the senator was only sent to the disciplinary committee, noting that he had replied a query where he denied some allegations of indiscipline leveled against him.
The party’s spokesman however
said the disciplinary committee is expected to submit their findings to the party leadership within two weeks.
Miffed by the outcome of the PDP primaries in Anambra State, Ubah had lambasted the party and threatened to go to court. Kashamu, on the other hand had rejected the outcome of the party convention which  dissolved the leadership of the party in Ogun State and the South west.
Adeyeye said, “This week we had some disciplinary issues regarding the issue of Anambra governorship primaries, in which one of the aspirants had launched a major attack against the leadership of the party in the media. I’m talking of Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah who has not been satisfied with the decision of the Governorship Appeal Panel, and decided to launch a rhetoric attack on the leadership of the party and those who were involved in the conduct of the primary.
“The National Caretaker Committee took a decision to issue him a query, asking him to retract the statement and to offer apology to those who have been disparaged by his remarks in the press.”
“He chose not to answer the query. Of course the query was issued under the relevant sections of the Constitution of the PDP. But he decided not to answer the query; consequent upon which the National Caretaker Committee today decided to suspend him for a period of one month and to refer the matter the National Disciplinary Committee for further necessary action.”
