The Social Democratic Party, (SDP) has fixed the national convention of the party for April 27 to 29 this year.

Rising from it’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held in Abuja on Saturday, the NEC set-up the convention planning, zoning and reconciliation committees comprising two members from each region for each of the committees.

The NEC also suspended the acting national Chairman, Dr. Olu Agunloye and national Secretary, Shehu Gabam respectively.

The two party leaders were suspended for alleged various abuses of the constitution. They were also accused of cornering the fees for expression of interest and nomination forms paid by the party’s governorship aspirant in the recent Anambra State election, Obinna Uzor.

On the suspension of the duo, the communique stated; “The NEC considered the various abuses of the constitution by the following underlisted officers and therefore agreed by majority to suspend; Alhaji Shehu Gabam and Dr. Olu Agunloye.”

The NEC was presided over by the party’s deputy national Chairman (North) Dr Abdul Ahmed Isiaq, who was hitherto suspended by the party.

Attempts to disrupt the gathering by some youth allegedly loyal to the Agunloye camp were repelled by security operatives present at the venue of the meeting which held in a hotel at Area 3, Garki Abuja.

Isiaq who was readmitted into the party on Saturday by the NEC, said the emergency meeting was called based on the provisions of Article 14(2)1 which states that the NEC
may summon an emergency any time it seems fit provided a seven-day notice is given to all those statutory to attend.
