The national leadership of Peoples Democratic Party has suspended Senator representing Anambra South senatorial zone, Senator Andy Uba, and four other members of the party the tate.

The other suspended members are Andy’s younger brother, Chris, factional chairman of the party in the state, Ejike Oguebego, Benji Udeozor, and Mrs Tonia Nwankwu.

The party’s NWC had summoned the quintet to appear on Wednesday to defend themselves on allegations of indiscipline.

A parallel governorship primary election held last weekend in Awka, the state capital, by the Oguebego faction, produced Senator Uba as winner.

On the same day, another parallel primary threw up Comrade Tony Nwoye as winner. National chairman Alhaji Bamanga Tukur on Wednesday handed Nwoye the party’s flag.

The suspension was conveyed in separate letters to the quintet. The five letters were signed by the party's Acting National Secretary, Remi Akintoye.
