The Kano State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reaffirmed the suspension of Bello Hayatu-Gwarzo, for anti-party activities.

The party’s chairman, Shehu Wada-Sagagi, announced this in a statement.

“Barely two days to the election of new zonal executives, the Kano State chapter of the PDP reaffirms the earlier suspension of Sen. Bello Hayatu-Gwarzo, accused of anti-party activities in the 2019 elections,” he stated. “As we approach the North-West zonal party congress, state executives of the PDP in Kano and its 44 local government chairmen met on Wednesday and unanimously endorsed his suspension.”

He added that the “suspension is because of Hayatu-Gwarzo’s romance with the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC) and direct involvement in anti-party activities,” as alleged by his ward during the 2019 general elections.

Mr Hayatu-Gwarzo’s ward issued him a suspension letter, and the local and state executive committees endorsed the suspension.”

Mr Wada-Sagagi explained that the party followed the necessary procedure on the suspension as contained in its constitution.

He also said the party had stopped Mr Hayatu-Gwarzo from participating in the upcoming zonal election.

“I confirm that I am in receipt of a court order directing the party to stop Sen. Hayatu-Gwarzo from participating in the upcoming North-West zonal election,” said the PDP chair. “It is, therefore, necessary for us as a party to obey this order to avoid unnecessary legal tussle capable of spoiling our party’s bright chances in the coming 2023 general elections.”

According to him, the state executive committee reaffirmed the senator’s suspension. As such, he does not have the right to contest any position in the party.

“It is our prayer that he will be withdrawn from the list of contestants, as per the said court order,’’ added Mr Wada-Sagagi.
