A top member of the G5 and Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Commitee (NWC) acted in contempt of a subsisting Court Order by referring him to the disciplinary committee of the party for alleged anti-party activities.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Governor Ortom also said that it was contemptuous of the PDP leadership to disregard the court order which barred the party or any organ of the party from issuing any disciplinary measure against him.
The governor’s reaction was contained in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Nathaniel Ikyur, on Thursday.
“I think the national leadership of our great party is losing its sense of direction. Instead of the leadership to sit back and think of ways of how to rebuild the party from the ruins of the defeat from the just concluded elections, they are going about chasing imaginary shadows.
“In any case, the first person the party should refer to the disciplinary committee should be the national chairman of the party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu. The national chairman lost his polling unit, lost his ward, local government, and even the state,” the statement by Ortom’s team said.
