Runner-up in the penultimate Monday’s governorship primaries of the PDP, Mr. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen, has described his purported suspension by the party in the state as laughable.
He said, “how can an illegal body suspend me; Orbih led PDP has been dissolved by the national leadership of the party so how can such a dissolved body suspend me?” Iduoriyekemwen asked.
Iduoriyekemwen, after some initial hesitation had rejected the result of the exercise and decided to pitch tenth with the Modu Sheriff led faction of the party whose governorship primaries is scheduled for tomorrow.
The party described his action as indiscipline and announced the suspension of the PDP leader. However, Iduoriyekemwen, who reacted yesterday, said “Orbih, Ize-Iyamu and all of them met me in PDP. I have been in the PDP since the creation of the party while they have all frolicked from APP to PDP, from PDP to APC then from APC they are now back to PDP to reap where they did not sow.
“I am a landlord in PDP and a tenant cannot suspend a landlord. They are jokers as far as I am concerned.”
