Rescind My Suspension In 48 Hours, Else I Withdraw Membership From PDP — Shehu Shema

Ibrahim Shehu Shema, former Katsina State governor, has given the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Working Committe (PDP NWC) 48 hours to reverse his suspension or consider him out of the Party.

The PDP chieftain also asked the NWC to disband what he called the “illegal caretaker committee ” of the PDP in Katsina and recognise the “duly elected” executive committee in the State.

Shema, via a letter dated March 24 and addressed to Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Party, said upon failure to rescind the decisions on the two issues he raised, the letter will serve as his formal and official withdrawal of membership from the PDP effective from Saturday, March 25, 2023.

“I cannot therefore continue to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under Dr. Iyorchia Ayu’s laws who is duty bound to preserve, protect and defend our constitution within his limited powers.

“It is in the height of these developments that I make the following appeals: Rescind the National Working Committee (NWC) decision of unlawful dissolution of Katsina State duly elected Executive Committee and allow them to complete their tenure and disband the purported caretaker committee similar to which so many court decisions in the land have illegalised.

“Rescind the National Working Committee (NWC) decision of my suspension as a member of our party within the next Forty-Eight (48) hours.

“Take notice that failure to effect these two changes above within Forty-Eight (48) hours, this letter serves as the formal and official withdrawal of my membership from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) effective from Saturday 25 March 2023,” the letter read in part.
