PDP suspends former Niger Govt Babangida Aliyu


The Niger State chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has reiterated that former Governor Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu remains suspended for his role in undermining and ensuring former President Goodluck Jonathan dropped in the 2015 Presidential Elections.

The Party leaders and loyal in the three senatorial districts of the country reaffirmed their support for the suspension of Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu through their spokesman, Mallam Yahaya Mohammed Usman.

The PDP spokesman from the state said it’s throwing its support behind the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike who said, Former Governor, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu owes the PDP an apology for declaring that he undermined the party in 2015 elections.

He stated, “We have been vindicated, we had told Nigerians and indeed Nigerlites that Dr. Aliyu betrayed us and worked for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

We have said it and we mind it he contributed funds to the opposition party”.

Wike, while speaking on a live meeting on African independent television (AIT) had stated, “So we had been campaigning not understanding you (Dr Aliyu) was undermining us, and then you also conducted for the senate in that election and lost, Aliyu Babangida owes an apology to the PDP”.

Before this week, Aliyu had stated the 19 Northern Governors worked against Jonathan in 2015 because there was an agreement that the former president would serve just 1 term.

But, Jonathan fired back, saying Aliyu was a pathological liar and a backstabber.

Likewise, Former Governors Jonah Jang and Sule Lamido denied knowledge of this agreement.

The PDP spokesman stated, “We reaffirm the altitude of former Deputy Governor, Dr. Shem Nuhu Zagbayi as the new leader for Aliyu’s Zone.”
