The Peoples Democratic Party in Chanchaga LGA of Niger has suspended Babangida Aliyu, former governor of the state.

The party at the LGA level accused Aliyu of working against the election of former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, among other allegations.

They announced the suspension on Monday via a communique issued at the end of their meeting in Minna, the state capital.

The communique was signed by eight ward chairmen of the party out of the ten in the LGA.

They also communicated their decision to the state caretaker committee via a letter dated March 29

The suspension is coming amid the lingering crisis that has torn the PDP in Niger apart since its botched state congress in 2020.

The LGA party leaders levelled six allegations against the former governor and asked him to respond within two weeks.

They listed the allegations as follows:

  • Causing disaffection within the party hierarchy after several attempts at making peace which he has either rebuffed or frustrated.
  • Anti-party activities leading to cracks in the party including insubordination to the authority of the then-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan which caused loss of government at Federal and State levels.
  • Funding of opposition APC in 2015 with the sum of N450 million to defeat his own party the PDP in Niger State in 2015.
  • Refusal to participate and attend party activities.
  • Undermining and working against the resolution of party organs, especially the State Caucus.
  • Causing division that has led to the inability to resolve the issues surrounding the position of State Legal Adviser zoned to his own Local Government Area.”
