Ibrahim Shehu, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor of Zamfara State, was expelled for allegedly engaging in anti-party actions.
Shehu was expelled owing to anti-party acts that violated Article 58(1)(a),(b),(c) of the party’s 2017 modified constitution, according to the expulsion letter issued by Hon. Aliyu Hassan, the party’s secretary in Mayana Ward.
According to the letter, the party’s Mayana Ward Working Committee made the decision, which would take effect in January 2023.
According to a source, Ibrahim Shehu was twice responsible for the party’s governorship primary election being declared invalid.
The source made many attempts to receive a response from Ibrahim Shehu, who served as a member of the Federal House of Representatives from 2011 to 2015.
The state chapter of the party, however, claimed to be unaware of the incident and that Shehu’s accusers will be fully probed before any further action was taken because it had not been officially alerted by the ward.
