The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Reform Vanguard invaded the party's office in Abuja on Thursday, demanding the immediate resignation of Amb. Iliya Damagum, the party's interim National Chairman.

The demonstration occurred hours before the PDP National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting set for later today amid hints that Damagum might be chosen as the party's next substantive chairman.

This, however, contradicts the views of certain party stakeholders who feel that the North Central must create a replacement for the previous national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

The youth also demanded the party to discipline FCT Minister Nyesom Wike for suspected anti-party acts.

In his presentation, Usman Seidu, the convener of the PDP Reform Vanguard, claimed Damagum and Wike had "undermined our collective efforts and jeopardized our very existence as a formidable opposition force”.


“The presence of individuals like Amb. Iliya Damagum and Mr Nyesom Wike within our midst remain a cancerous growth on the body of our party.

“Ayu must be replaced with a loyal member from the North Central; someone who embodies the spirit of our party and will work tirelessly for the advancement of its course,” he said.
