The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reversed the suspension of a former Senate President, Pius Anyim, former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, and former Katsina State governor, Ibrahim Shema, from the party.

It also lifted the suspension on two other members – Dennis Ityavyar from Benue State and Aslam Aliyu from Zamfara State.

The party also reversed the referral of the governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, to its disciplinary committee.

A statement by the spokesperson of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba, on Thursday in Abuja, said it took the decision at the meeting of the national working committee (NWC) where recent developments in the party were extensively discussed.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at its meeting today, Thursday, March 30, 2023, extensively discussed recent developments in the Party.

“The NWC recognised the imperativeness of a total reconciliation among Party leaders and critical stakeholders for a more cohesive Party in the overall interest of our teeming members and Nigerians in general“Consequent upon the above, the NWC reverses the referral of the Governor of Benue State, His Excellency, Dr. Samuel Ortom to the National Disciplinary Committee.

“The NWC in the same vein reverses the suspension of the following under-listed members of our great Party:

1. H.E Ibrahim Shema (Katsina State)

2. Ayodele Fayose (Ekiti State)

3. Sen. Pius Anyim (Ebonyi State)

4. Prof. Dennis Ityavyar (Benue State)

5. Dr. Aslam Aliyu (Zamfara State)

The party said the decision was “without prejudice to the powers of the NWC to take necessary disciplinary action against any member of the party at any time pursuant to the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP (as amended in 2017).”

It said, “the NWC charges all leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of our party across the country to be guided by the provisions of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017) as well as the new spirit and necessity of reconciliation, unity and harmony in our Party at this critical time.”

The statement also said the PDP must remain focused as necessary action was being taken “to recover the stolen mandate freely given by Nigerians to our party and Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday, February 25, 2023, at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.”
