Governor Aliyu Wamakko.

The crisis currently engulfing the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took a worst turn as the Sokoto State Chapter of the Party has disowned the National Secretariat of the party and pledged its loyalty to Governor Aliyu Wamakko.

Mr. Wamakko was suspended by the National Working Committee of the PDP on Wednesday for alleged anti-party activities.

But at a press conference in Sokoto attended by the chairman of the PDP in and other state executive members of the party, the state PDP leaders dissociated themselves from the decision of the national body, saying they would not recognise the suspension of the governor.

They blamed the national secretariat for listening to rumours by Abuja based Sokoto politicians.

The party also recently suspended governor Rotimi Ameachi of Rivers state and reported attempts to have the governor impeahed were rejected by the state house of Assembly
