Confusion Struck PNC

Listen to article

Confusion appears to have struck the People's National Convention (PNC) over who should act as National Chairman in the absence of the substantive Chairman.

Whilst PNC guru, Alhaji Ramadan, currently calls himself acting chairman of the party, the Member of Parliament for Zebilla, John Ndebugre, insists that he is the constitutionally recognized acting chairman, although the party claims he has been suspended from the position.

The continuing troubles have compelled John Ndebugre, to drag seven top guns of the party to court, seeking the intervention of the courts to restrain Alhaji Ramadan from holding himself up as the acting chairman of the party.

It would be recalled that earlier this year, John Ndebugre was supposedly suspended by the party for allegedly committing acts that were inconsistent with the party's beliefs.

He had hit back, insisting that those who constituted the body that recommended his suspension were not recognized by the constitution of the party.

According to him, his purported suspension is unconstitutional.

He further rejected assertions by his critics that by the court action, he is attacking the structures of the party to which he belongs.

Meanwhile, Alhaji Ramadan has described as unfortunate the legal action by John Nedugre.

He told CITI NEWS that the MP for Zebilla caused his own predicaments, especially when he refused to follow laid down procedures of the party.

According to him, John Ndebugre could have addressed whatever grievances he had with the seven persons using the party's structure and rules, but he blatantly refused to do so, a situation de described as bad.

When asked whether the court action by the MP for Zebilla could lead to his expulsion from the PNC, Alhaji Ramadan responded in the negative, explaining that the party considers John Ndebugre as a great asset.
