Rep. dismisses calls for PDP chairman’s resignation



PDP National officer, Magaji Alhassan dumps party

In response to calls for the resignation of the acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Umar Damagum, Rep.

Kingsley Chinda, Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, has urged Nigerians to disregard such demands.

A purported “coalition of PDP lawmakers” in the house had called for Damagun’s resignation.

However, a statement co-signed by members of the minority caucus leadership on Monday night clarified that there was no such coalition in parliament.

“We wish to state unequivocally that the minority caucus and PDP caucus dissociate themselves from the said press statement,” the statement declared.

“The general public should note that such a coalition is unknown to parliament and their demand does not represent that of the minority parties.”

The statement emphasized that the alleged coalition’s demand and conduct were condemned in totality, urging them to desist from further misinformation.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that a coalition of 60 PDP members in the house had called for Damagum’s resignation over alleged anti-party activities in Rivers and 10 other states.

Led by Rep. Ikenga Ugochinyere (PDP-Imo), the group demanded further sanctions against Damagum from the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, threatening to resign from the party if their demands were not met.

They asserted that their call was necessary to save the largest opposition party on the continent.
