The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rubbished a letter alleging that the party had suspended Professor Sandy Onor, its governorship candidate in Cross River State.
Debo Ologunagba, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, stated in Abuja that the letter of suspension of Onor, reportedly signed by the National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and circulating online, was fake.
He said, “The said letter is a fake and an evil design by anti-people elements with the intent to cause confusion within our party, mislead the people of Cross River and manipulate the governorship election against the PDP.
“The PDP states in clear terms that Onor remains the governorship candidate of the PDP in Cross River for the 2023 governorship election.
“He’s not suspended from the party; the NWC has no contemplation in that regard, and there are no issues whatsoever to warrant his suspension.”
Ologunagba further stated that at no time did the PDP’s chairman address any letter to INEC on any issue related to the party’s governorship candidate in Cross River, NAN reports.
“This is clear evidence that the said letter is a fake,” Ologunagba stressed.
Meanwhile, the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections were conducted on Saturday across 28 States in Nigeria.
The results of the elections have already started coming out as the likes of the APC, PDP, LP, and other political parties contest for political offices.
