The Plateau State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has suspended its Chairman, Mr. Damishi Sango and his Deputy, Mr. Amos Gombi over alleged financial misconduct.

The Party in a meeting, Tuesday on "elections & party affairs" passed a "vote of no confidence" on the two "in the bid to save the Party".

A statement issued by the Party's Publicity Secretary, Mr. John Akans on Wednesday also announced the dissolution of the State Campaign Council.

The statement lists the reasons for the action as:

"a. That the resources sent to the State for the Presidential elections were not accounted for by the Chairman aided by the Deputy Chairman concealed the amount sent by the Presidential Campaign Committee and created a fraudulent unseen template used as “a sharing formula” unknown to the State Party Structure and up till date no disclosure has been made by the Chairman and/or the Deputy Chairman.

"b. The Moneys raised and saved by the Party to help Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to help relieve their pains were also not accounted for up till this moment. NO Mention has been made of the stated funds. It is worthy to note that the Deputy Chairman is the Chairman Committee on IDPs for the party.

"c. The money meant for P. D. P. Plateau State Retreat was equally not accounted for by the Chairman and/or the Deputy Chairman.

"d. The arbitrary substitution of the legitimate candidate who won his primaries for Wase Federal House of Representatives by the Chairman and this Deputy without recourse to the EXCO or SEC due to some financial inducement to the Chairman and the Deputy Chairman cost PDP to lose the election in Wase Federal House of Representatives.

"e. Due to the highhandedness of the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the party has caused the party to plunge into confusion. High disregard to Elders, Critical Stakeholders and Members of the SEC as their advises and decisions no longer relevant to the chairman and the Deputy Chairman."

Mr. Chris Hassan, the State Vice Chairman, Northern Zone of the Party has been appointed to act in place of Sango pending the resolution of the matter.
