NRM National Chairman, Udeh suspended

The National Executive Committee of the Nigeria Rescue Movement NRM, has suspended the national chairman of the party, Ambassador Isaac Udeh and the national organizing secretary, Mr Mohammed Idrissu, for allegedly forging the signature of the party’s presidential candidate, Mazi Okwudili Nwa-Anyajike.

Addressing Journalists in Abuja, the chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, Senator Saidu Dansauda berated the two officials for the alleged criminal act.

The BoT chairman emphasized that the action of the suspended national officers was a gross violation of the mission of the party to rescue Nigeria.

Senator Dansauda urged the police to expeditiously investigate, arrest and arraign Ambassador Udeh and Mr Idrissu for undermining the integrity of the party.

The presidential candidate of the party, Mazi Okwudili Nwa- Anyajike, explained that the suspended national chairman and organising secretary allegedly conspired to forge his signature after he had paid the suspended officials twenty million naira for the party’s presidential ticket.

In a vote at the end of the NEC, party officials passed a vote of confidence on their presidential candidate, Mazi Nwa- Anyajike, and urged party members to rally behind him to rescue the nation from insecurity and hunger.
