Kaduna PDP suspends Senator Hunkuyi, six others


The State Working Committee (SWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna has suspended Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, the former lawmaker representing Kaduna North district in the Senate. The PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, Abraham Catoh, confirmed this in a statement on Saturday.

He explained that Senator Hunkuyi was suspended along with six other party members for alleged anti-party activities. Others suspended included a former deputy speaker of Kaduna State House of Assembly, Dr Dogara Mato, John Danfulani, Hashim Garba, Ibrahim Lazuru, Lawal Adamu, and Ubale Salmaduna. Catoh stressed that the committee took the decision in line with the provision of the PDP Constitution as provided in Section 57(3) 2017, as amended.

According to him, the said members stand suspended from the party from May 16, 2020, and will be expected to appear before a disciplinary committee on a date and time to be announced by the committee.

The party’s spokesman in Kaduna revealed that the committee also resolved that one Retired Colonel Dauda Gora was not a registered member of the PDP and therefore, declared him as an impersonator.
