Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi who was elected Chairman of Governor’s Forum at the weekend has been suspended by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).His suspension is coming just a day after the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) issued a statement, noting that the governors opposed to Amaechi’s elections were bad losers.

PDP announced the suspension today in a communiqué signed by Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mr. Olisa Metuh after a meeting of the National Working Committee of the party.
