JUST IN: 60 PDP lawmakers threaten to leave party, demand chairman’s resignation

Not less than 60 People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members in the House of Representatives have vowed to leave the party if Acting National Chairman Umar Ililya Damagum does not step down immediately.

They urged he should immediately be replaced by someone from the North Central in accordance with the party’s constitution, among other requests.

The lawmakers accused Damagum of handing over the structure of the leadership of the PDP to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Hon Ugochinyere Ikenga, who led five other lawmakers to address reporters at the National Assembly on Monday, delivered the threaton behalf of the 60 PDP lawmakers.

He said the Acting National Chairman, who has been allegedly engaging in anti-party activities, sold the party “for a plate of porridge.”

Ikenga pointed that if President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was not consistent in opposition over the years, he would have not succeeded as President today.

They said Damagun should go before completely destroying the party.

The lawmakers threatened that if these are not met they would leave the PDP and move to join other political parties.
