The Kebbi chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has lifted the suspension it clamped on 14 of its party members over alleged anti-party activities.
Haruna Saidu, state chairman of the party, made this known to journalists on Sunday in Birnin Kebbi.
He said that the lifting of the three-month suspension followed the intervention of the PDP elders committee which ensured the resolution of the matter.
“Sequel to the intervention by the elders committee and the resolution emanating therefrom, I am delighted to announce the lifting of the suspension clamped on 14 party members.
“With the resolution of the issues, our great party in Kebbi has become more united than ever,” Saidu said.
The chairman confirmed that the party would participate in the forthcoming local government elections scheduled to hold on 26 Oct., 2019.
