The news is everywhere! The Peoples Democratic Party has suspended the Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, from the party. The PDP stated this after an emergency meeting of its National Working Committee on Monday. Mr. Amaechi was recently elected chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum against the wish of the PDP.

In a communique issued at the end of an emergency meeting of the National Working Committee of the PDP earlier today, which stated that “The National Working Committee at its emergency meeting on Monday, 27 May, 2013 considered the petition submitted by the PDP Rivers Executive Committee against His Excellency, Rt Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the Executive Governor of Rivers State for violating Articles 58 1 (b), (c), (h) and (m) of the PDP Constitution following his refusal to obey the lawful directive of the Rivers State Executive Committee to rescind his decision dissolving the elected Executive Council of Obiokpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.” , we’re made to understand that this issue IS NOT CONNECTED with the recent Nigerian  Governors Forum tussle! Already, fingers are being pointed to certain quarters but we are sure issues will be resolved amicably.

The National Working Committee after preliminary hearing, in exercise of the powers conferred by Articles 57 (3), 59 (3), 59 (5) and 29 (2.b), had suspended Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as a member of the PDP and had referred the matter to the appropriate disciplinary committee of the Party.

It is only advisable for one to sit and watch events unfold than fuel this already ravaging fire. Abi?
