Adding  more salt to a festering sore, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the Executive Governor of Rivers State has now be suspended by his ruling party  - Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Loading to the headache and burden  of Governor Amaechi was his bad relationship with the presidency and his squabble  with Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) on the chairmanship of the group. But these were not the loads that break the camel's back.


Rather he was suspended for 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."

 

A  communique was later released at the end of an emergency meeting  called by PDP -National Working Committee, NWC, and was  appendly signed and cleared  by National Publicity Secretary, Mr Olisa Metuh.

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), hereby suspends the Executive Governor of River State, Rt Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as a member of the PDP and refers the matter to the  appropriate disciplinary committee of the Party.

 

This is in furtherance of the determination of the leadership of the Party to enforce discipline at all levels within the Party.
