The National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur who announced the decision of the party at Legacy House, Abuja, said the decision was taken based on the appeal and intervention of the PDP Governors’ Forum led by the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Chief Godswill Akpabio.
Alhaji Tukur said the party could not resist the appeal of the PDP Governors on their colleague but said the party would not condone indiscipline in any form. He charged Governors elected on the platform of the party to show more commitment to the party.
Addressing the press, Governor Akpabio said they had reviewed the events in the party and made a passionate appeal to the National Working Committee of the party to rescind the decision to suspend the Governor of Sokoto State and thanked the NWC for obliging their request.
It would be recalled that the PDP had earlier suspended the Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Wamako for acts of indiscipline.
Other members of the Committee who met with the PDP National Working Committee included, the Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda; the Governor of Abia State, Chief Theodore Orji; the Governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Ibrahim Shema; the Governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan and the Governor of Benue State, Dr Gabriel Suswam.
