A lawyer and member of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Harvey Ideozu on Wednesday said the formation of the PDP Governors Forum chaired by the Akwa Ibom State governor, Godswill Akpabio is “clearly in breach of article 21.1j of the PDP constitution which prohibits the formation of any body under the guise of the party.”
Mr Ideozu disclosed this in a telephone interview during Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily.
While prescribing sanction for members found to belong to bodies under the guise of the PDP, Mr Ideozu said the PDP governors are allowed to form any association but should not label it PDP Governors forum.
“Any member of the party will be disciplined that belongs to any group under the guise of the party,” he said.
Article 21.1j of the PDP constitution holds that “subject to the provisions of this constitution, the party shall have power to discipline member who promotes factions or belongs to any group under guise of the party and by whatever name called not being one provided for in this constitution.”
