He added that the NWC also dissolved the party’s executive committee in the state.
According to Ologunagba, the decision to suspend the members was taken after a review and consideration of the party’s affairs in the country.
Nnamani, a major supporter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has stayed away from the PDP campaign rallies since September last year.
