Nigeria: Aliyu Wamako suspended from PDP

Barely two weeks after the ruling People's Democratic Party's (PDP) National Working Council (NWC) suspended Rivers State's Governor Rotimi Amaechi from the party, the NWC has now announced the suspension of Sokoto State's Governor Aliyu Wamako. This was announced on 5 June by PDP national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, following a meeting of the NWC on the same day.
Wamako's suspension is said to be the consequence of “repeated breaches and disregard” of PDP's constitution. The NWC accused Wamako of ignoring invitations and lawful directives of the NWC on several occasions, showing apathy to the affairs of the party and contempt to one of the party's organs.
The statement revealed that it follows his unexplained refusal to honour another invitation to appear before it on the same day.
