PDP threatens sanction against erring Kogi Assembly members


The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed to sanction any member of the Kogi State House of Assembly that indulges in anti-party activities.

The party in a statement also resolved that that the status quo be maintained, with Hon. Momoh-Jimoh Lawal as speaker.

Media Adviser to the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Mr. Felix Udebu said that the national working committee at a reconciliation meeting held in Abuja on Thursday which had all the PDP members in Kogi House of Assembly in attendance, noted that since PDP formed majority in the house, members must “avoid conniving with other political parties to run the assembly down”.

It warned that any member that works against the interest of the party will be sanctioned.

The statement added that after the resolution of the dispute, the speaker and the factional leader Hon. Godwin Osiyi embraced.

The leadership tussle in the Kogi State House of Assembly has lingered for more than two months, before the Abuja meeting was summoned to broker peace among the two factions within the PDP in the house.
