Nigeria’s opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at an emergency meeting today, Tuesday, March 28, 2023, acknowledged the Order of the Benue State High Court, dated March 27, 2023 with regards to the Chairmanship position of our great Party.
In a press conference at the party headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday, the National Working Committee (NWC) through the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba said after a careful reflection over the Court Order and in line with Section 45 (2) of the Constitution of the PDP (as amended in 2017), the NWC resolved that the Deputy National Chairman (North) His Excellency, Amb. Umar Ililya Damagum assumes the National Chairmanship of our Party in acting capacity with effect from Tuesday, March 28, 2023.
Iyorchia Ayu was suspended late last week for anti-party activities in the wake of the party’s loss in the February presidential election.
But in a Monday statement by his media aide Simon Imobo-Tswam, the former lawmaker argued that only the ward lacked the powers to suspend him.
The NWC charged all its stakeholders, teeming members and supporters of the Party to remain calm and united at this critical time.
