National Working Committee, NWC, of Peoples Progressive Alliance, PPA, yesterday announced the dissolution of its state executive committees in Sokoto, Niger, Plateau and Ekiti, States over alleged failures to field candidates in the just concluded General Elections.
The NWC, which also accused affected executive committees of incompetence, failures to promote and sell the party’s manifesto during the polls, said their action “caused disaffection within the party and unruly behaviour” to its leadership.
The national chairman of PPA, Chief Peter Ameh, who conveyed the development via a letter to the chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, said the action became imperative in order to strengthen and reposition the party for enhanced performance.
The party has consequently appointed a 12-man caretaker committee to take charge, pending the conduct of a fresh congress.
The NWC said its Niger State chapter was dissolved “after series of investigation which found members culpable of gross misconduct contrary to Article 12(2) a, b, c, d and refusal to appear before its disciplinary committee.”
Ameh told journalists on Friday in Abuja during a press briefing to announce the party’s decision that the action will improve “our chances as we start early preparation for future elections.”
The letter was also copied to the Resident Electoral Commissioners of affected states, Commissioners of Police and Directors of State Security Services.
He noted that, “Apart from the offense listed in their official letters, including gross misconduct, the affected states failed grossly to enhance the chances of the party at the last polls, where some of them failed to file in candidates for the election.
