Former Governor Niger State, Muazu Babangida Aliyu

Former Niger State Governor Muazu Babangida Aliyu has been suspended by the People’s Democratic Party (PD) .

According to a statement at the end of an emergency stakeholders’ meeting in Minna on Monday, the party said that Aliyu was suspended over allegations of anti-party activities leading to cracks in the party since 2014.

The suspension was as a result of six weighty allegations, which the party in Chanchaga Local Area of Niger State, finds very disturbing and inimical to the progress of the PDP.

The PDP in a statement, titled “Notice of suspension of Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu from the PDP, Chanchaga LGA,” also disclosed that the former governor worked against former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the party’s governorship candidate in Niger State, Alhaji Umar Nasko, by supporting and funding the opposition All Progressives Congress in 2015 with the sum of N450 million to defeat his own party.

The communique, which was made available to newsmen on Monday, said the allegations were as follows: “Causing disaffection within the party hierarchy even after several peace efforts.

“Verifiable allegations of anti-party activities leading to cracks in the party since 2014 that led to loss of government at the centre and the state levels.

This includes disobedience to then President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and working against his re-election success in 2015.”

The communique further blamed the former governor, saying: “He supported and funded the opposition, APC in 2015 with the sum of N450 million to defeat his own party for personal and selfish reasons.

“Refusal to participate and attend party activities; Undermining and working against the resolutions of party organs especially the state caucus and causing division that has led to inability to resolve the issues surrounding the position of state legal adviser that has been unoccupied since 2015 in his own Local Government Area.

“These and many others have led to the immediate suspension of Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu from the People’s Democratic Party in Chanchaga local Government.”

The meeting, which was attended by eight ward chairmen of the party out of the 11 wards in in the LGA, elders and party faithful from Chanchaga LGA, said the allegations levelled against him were forwarded to him to respond to within 14 days from the date of the meeting.
