BY EMMANUEL AZIKEN, Political Editor

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, disciplinary committee constituted by the National Working Committee, NWC, has commenced deliberations on cases of alleged indiscipline by senior party members, it was learnt, Tuesday.

The commencement of deliberations is despite the fact the committee headed by Alhaji Umaru Dikko was yet to be inaugurated. Dikko is hospitalised and is outside the country.

The informal meetings, authoritative sources told Vanguard, were informed by the need to dispose pressing disciplinary issues currently facing the party.

Other party sources, however, alleged that the rush by the committee was to provide the legal backing for the expulsion of some governors from the party. including Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State, who had been suspended.

Governors and other members of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party can only be expelled from the party upon the recommendations of a disciplinary committee.

It was gathered, yesterday, that the activities of some prominent members of the party, notably some governors may have been presented to the committee.
