Why PDP NWC dismissed Adams' suspension

Nearly two months ago, Adams was suspended by some members of the PDP in Ondo state.

However, the party's national working committee dismissed the suspension, insisting it was unconstitutional.

A statement released by the party's national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, said the party considered the suspension as an insult that could lead to decisive sanctions.

He said the PDP is an organised political party, adding that the party's strict adherence to the constitution and the rule of law would not allow the suspension to stay.
