Forum for Kaduna state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) young persons for progress and development has said that suspension of former Senator of Kaduna north senatorial district, Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi and 6 others was a best decision ever.
The commendation was contained in a statement signed by the Chairman, Comrade Danjuma Bello Sarki and Honourable Bello Jallo Secretary of the forum.
“Our organisation received the news of the suspension of some members of our party, the Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna State with some sense of applause and commendation.
We wish to categorically state that, the action taken on the 16th May, 2020 by the Working Committee of the State Caretaker Committee (CTC), after preliminary hearings is a step in the right direction and in full compliance with the provision of the PDP Constitution”.
“As a responsible political party, which believes in the rule of law, PDP must not fold its arms and watch some members who are alleged to have flagrantly breach some Sections of the Party’s Constitution be allowed to go Scot-free.
Offences and Sanctions are expressly provided for in Sections 58 (1) and 59 of the Constitution of the Party”.
The Group reiterated that, they are totally in support of any “punitive measure meted against any member or group who engages in any conduct likely to cause disaffection among members of the Party or is likely to disrupt the peaceful, lawful and efficient conduct of the business of the Party”.
The Group urged the Party to diligently investigate all the allegations levelled against them, with a view to applying appropriate sanctions on anyone found guilty, no matter how highly placed he is, the statement said.
The Group also urged members of PDP to continue to accord the necessary support and respect for the Constitution and leadership of the Party.
