The Peoples Democratic Party has suspended a serving Senator, Andy Uba, and four other members of the party from Anambra State.
The National Working Committee of the PDP suspended the five men for failing to honour the party’s invitation over the parallel congress organised in Awka on Saturday.
The suspension was contained in a letter addressed individually to the five men. The letters were signed by the party’s Acting National Secretary, Remi Akintoye.
Others suspended alongside Senator Uba are his brother, Chris Uba, a factional chairman of the PDP in Anambra, Ejike Oguebego, Benji Udeozor, and Tonia Nwankwu.
Andy Uba won the PDP governorship ticket for Anambra at the parallel primary conducted by the Oguebego leadership of the party in the state.
The PDP national headquarters has recognised Tony Nwoye, elected at another congress, as the party’s flag bearer for the Anambra governorship election in November.
