Nigeria ruling party suspends reformist faction

Nigeria's ruling party suspended 19 senior members on Thursday who openly criticised the party leadership, deepening a row which could split the country's main political grouping ahead of presidential polls next year.

"Members of the so-called PDP Reform Forum are suspended from the party forthwith," the ruling party said in a statement, listing the 19 names which include former Senate presidents, ex-ministers and ex-state governors.
