The Kwara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended a former Commissioner for Education, Engr. Musa Yeketi, over alleged anti-party activities.

Yeketi, a former staunch loyalist of a former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, was suspended via a letter by his ward in Asa LGA of the state.

He was accused in the letter sent to the state chapter and signed by the ward chairman and secretary, Malam Salaudeen Babatunde and Mr Salman Abdulkadir respectively, of working against the party. 

The suspension, the letter noted, was in accordance with Section 57(3) of the PDP constitution (as amended).

But following his suspension, Yeketi on Sunday officially dumped the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

The former commissioner used the occasion of his daughter’s wedding to announce his defection.
