“PDP SWC strongly viewed the senator’s actions, as totally unacceptable, disturbing and unbecoming of a and party member of his stature.

“The PDP SWC is in no doubt that the rash, unguarded, confused and heavily noxious and vitriolic attacks by Sen. Nwaoboshi, a serving senator and a very recent chairman of great party are potentially inimical the peace and harmony of the party.

“And it is tantamount causing discord and disaffection among loyal party members.

“The suspension, therefore, though obligatory has sadly become imperative and inevitable, especially given the dramatic spontaneity and overzealousness of his verbal attacks, which are totally out of character,” he said.
