PDP Rescinds Decision To Suspend Sokoto State Governor

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday rescinded its decision suspending the Sokoto State governor, Aliyu Wamakko.
The decision to withdraw the suspension slammed on Mr. Wamakko followed appeals from the PDP Governors Forum led by the Akwa-Ibom State Governor, Godswill Akpabio.
Mr. Wamakko was last week suspended from the PDP for alleged anti-party activities and disrespecting the party’s National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur.
The governor’s suspension was announced while he was on a trip abroad, coming barely one week after the party announced the suspension of Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, also for alleged anti-party activities, specifically regarding his role in the sacking of 17 councillors, the Chairman and his deputy in Obi Apkor Local Government Area of the state.
