Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has insisted that former Niger State Governor Babangida Aliyu, worked against the party during the 2015 general election by donating money to the All Progressives Congress, APC and some other opposition parties in the state.
According to a report from an online medium, the state chapter of the party, yesterday, maintained that Babangida Aliyu remained suspended from the PDP for his role in undermining the party during the 2015 presidential elections.
The report stated that the party leaders and members in the three senatorial districts of the state reaffirmed their support for the suspension of Aliyu through their spokesman, Mallam Yahaya Usman.
The PDP spokesman in Niger state said it backed the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, who said Aliyu owed the PDP an apology for admitting that he undermined the party in the 2015 elections.
Usman said Aliyu betrayed the party, former President Goodluck Jonathan and the governorship candidate, Umar Nasko in 2015.
Usman said: “We now support Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike, who said that former Gov. Aliyu owed the PDP an apology for admitting that he undermined the party in the 2015 elections.
“We have been vindicated, Dr. Aliyu betrayed us and worked for the ruling All Progressives Congress. He betrayed the party, former President Goodluck Jonathan and our governorship candidate, Alhaji Umar Nasko. We have said it that he donated funds to the opposition party.”
It would be recalled Nigerian Pilot had earlier reported that the Niger chapter of the PDP suspended former governor Aliyu over allegations of anti-party activities. It was reported that the former governor was suspended during an emergency stakeholders’ meeting of Chachanga local Area in Minna, the state capital on Monday, March 29.
The PDP also accused the former governor of working against the party and supporting the APC in the 2015 election, adding that he does not attend meetings and that he is working to disintegrate the party.
