Former Enugu State governor Chimaroke Nnamani has faulted his suspension by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The PDP on Friday announced the suspension of Nnamani and others in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba over alleged anti-party activities.
Reacting to his suspension, Nnamani said he was not given fair hearing before his suspension was announced.
In a tweet on Friday evening, Nnamani said: “Earlier tonight, the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) announced the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP, suspending me from the party.
“I have since been inundated with telephone calls and messages from various persons, seeking my clarification on the matter. Just like every other person, the decision and announcement of my purported suspension from the PDP came to me as a rude shock and a huge surprise.
“I was never at any time notified of any petition or complaint against me or informed of the grounds that formed the decision of the NWC of the PDP to suspend me from the party.
“I was not also invited to any meeting, proceeding, or hearing of the NWC of the party where my supposed offense (s) was/were discussed. I was, therefore, not afforded the opportunity to make representations on my behalf at any meeting where the proposal and decision to suspend me from the party was made. My right to a fair hearing was consequently violated against the clear provisions of the Constitution of the party, especially in disciplinary proceedings. More importantly the Superior Constitution of the FRN.”
