According to the statement, those expelled from the party include Hon Nandom Pyennap Exodus; Godwin Bedir and Akims Mamo James; Others were Mrs Asabe Dareng; Nathaniel Dakas ;Jecob Dashed as well as Alh Kabiru Musa.
Jay FM reports that Pyennap’s led committee backed by a former Governorship candidate of the party,Jeremiah Useni was formed as a parallel exco in defiance to the one constituted by the National Working Committee of the party and led by Yakubu Chocho
Some stakeholders of the party who reacted to the expulsion of the party members describe the action as a right step in the right direction. They called on the State Caretaker committee led by Yakubu Chocho not to be distracted by the antics of a few individuals who did not mean well for the party but to remain focused in its efforts to take Plateau PDP to the promised land
