Chris Hassan: sacked as Plateau PDP chairman

By Emmanuel Oloniruha/Abuja

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party has sacked the Plateau State Executive Committee, led by Chris Hassan, a former works commissioner in the state.

The party disclosed this in a statement by its National Organising Secretary, retired Col. Austin Akobundu, on Thursday in Abuja.

Akobundu said that the NWC also appointed a State Caretaker Committee to oversee the affairs of the State for a period of not more than 90 days with effect from Thursday, June 10.

The state caretaker committee is chaired by Sen. Tunde Ogbeha, with Patrick Ogbu, as Secretary.

The members are Kunsi Ndayako, Michael Dapialong, Pam Davou, Emmanuel Go’ar, Istifanus Mwansat, Mr Ishaku Chuntai, Jacob Adikaba, Akims James and Gregory Yenlong

Akobundu advised all PDP leaders and critical stakeholders to be guided accordingly.

The sacked executive members were elected last year August, amid court cases.
