- Senator Jeremiah Useni said the suspension of Damishi Sango as chairman of PDP in Plateau is laughable
- Useni said he laughed when he heard that 16 members sacked Sango over alleged financial impropriety
- The governorship candidate of the PDP in Plateau claimed Sango was suspended by those who contested against him
Senator Jeremiah Useni, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau, has kicked against the suspension of the party’s chairman in the state, Damshi Sango.
Useni said the suspension of Sango and his deputy, Amos Gombi, by 16 members of the party over alleged financial impropriety and mishandling of party resources was laughable.
This Day reports that while speaking with journalists at the party’s secretariat in Jos after a state executive council meeting, Useni described as absolutely wrong, the suspension of Sango, a former minister.
“I laughed when I heard that the party chairman has been suspended because no offence was committed.
“It was surprising to me when they said they have removed him. You don’t remove somebody like that because there are laid down procedures for doing that which was not followed.
“There is the need for those involved in this action to calm down because we need peace in the party. I understand that this is done by people we contested election together at the party primaries but I am ready to carry everyone along as governor because very soon, I will reclaim my mandate at the tribunal," he said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Plateau chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently passed a vote of no confidence on its chairman, Damishi Sango, and the deputy chairman, Amos Gombi.
The party’s State Executive Council (SEC), in a meeting held in Jos, in the early hours of Wednesday, April 24, resolved to sack the officials.
The SEC, whose resolutions were signed by 16 members, appointed Chris Hassan, vice chairman of the party in the northern senatorial zone, to take over its leadership as acting state chairman.
