The Peoples Democratic Party in Ngor, Ward 1 Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, has suspended Hon. Awaji-Inombek Abiante, member representing Andoni/Opobo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.

This was contained in a resolution read to newsmen after a meeting of the leaders and stakeholders of the PDP in Ngor, on Monday evening.

Abiante is one of the federal lawmakers loyal to Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State in the ongoing rift with Nyesom Wike, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The resolution, which was signed by the PDP CTC Ward Chairman in Andoni LGA, Dike Bara, and CTC Ward Secretary, CTC, Dokubo Jackson, and 12 other executives was unanimously adopted by the leaders and stakeholders of the party in the ward.

Reading the resolution to newsmen on Monday evening, the PDP CTC Chairman of Ngor, said Abiante’s suspension was due to anti-party activities.

He also accused the federal lawmaker of involvement in unauthorized publicity of dispute within the Party and creating a parallel Party organ at the Ward level, among others.

The resolution read, “That Hon. Awaji-inombek Dagomie Abiante should be and, is hereby suspended from the Party for not only promoting factions at the Ward level, but also belonging to a group under the guise of the Party: not being a group provided for in the Party’s Constitution. Which action is in breach of S. 58(1) (0) of the Party’s Constitution.

“That the suspension of Hon. Awaji-inombek Dagomie Abiante is also predicated upon his involvement in unauthorized publicity of disputes within the Party, creating a parallel Party organ at the Ward level and, his involvement in anti-party activities.

Thereby, causing disaffection among members of the Party and threatening peaceful, lawful and efficient conduct of the business of the Party at the ward level.

“Thus, in breach of S.58(1)(i),(e)&(h) of the Party’s Constitution. Furthermore, the suspension of Hon. Awaji-inombek Dagomie Abiante became indispensable putting into consideration, his involvement in organizing, equips and encouraging the retention, training, equipping of a group of members for the purpose of employing violence, coercion and other forms of intimidation within the party.

“Thereby, breaching S. 58(1) (k) of the Party’s Constitution.”

A strong supporter of Fubara, Abiante led a solidarity protest for Fubara’s administration when the rift with Wike heightened in December.
