, protesters stormed the headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja demanding the resignation of the party’s National Working Committee.
The group, under the aegis of the PDP National Back Up arrived at Wadata Plaza, the national secretariat of the party demanding the immediate resignation of the acting National Chairman, UMAR DAMAGUM-led NWC citing the loss of the 2023 elections.
Dressed in black and white with the inscription “PDP National Working Committee NWC must resign”, the protesters lamented that the party had been reduced to nothing.
Addressing newsmen at the party’s secretariat, the leader of the protest, SALAU OLUSOLA, accused the PDP NWC of failing in strategic decision-making and that many members of the party have lost confidence in the leadership’s ability to navigate challenges and represent the party’s interests.
OLUSOLA explained that the failure of the acting Chairman-led NWC to discipline former Rivers State Governor and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, NYESOM WIKE’s camp, for alleged anti-party activities, divided the PDP.
In her remarks, a member of the protesters, AMI GIFT also said the NWC has failed to reconcile aggrieved members.
