PDP settles not to discuss chairmanship at NEC meeting

PDP settles not to discuss chairmanship at NEC meeting

The National Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), has resolved that the appointment of the party’s national chairman will not be listed for discussion at its National Executive Committee, (NEC), meeting holding by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday.

National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Debo Ologunagba, made this statement while briefing newsmen after the party’s caucus meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.

Ologunagba said the matter was not slated for discussion because it was not considered at the caucus meeting.

He said the PDP national chairmanship could, however, be tendered for the meeting of the committee yet to be fixed.

“The caucus did not consider that issue of leadership because we considered that at this time there are so many issues that are involved about the leadership. So, that issue was referred to the next NEC meeting.

“So, what we are taking to Thursday’s NEC , the issue of leadership of the party is not one of them, but the caucus has considered the issues that the National Working Committee (NWC) brought before it,” he said.

According to him, that by implication, the incumbent, Umar Damagum, would continue in acting capacity until the next NEC meeting after Thursday.

He said the advice was to allow more consultations on the issue.

“We as a party must be united and those issues are not such as to divide us, knowing fully well that we are going to follow our constitution, in line with our succession plan, having regard to the circumstances we find ourselves in.

We recognise the situation as it happened in terms of where we are, with the court processes and we want to be sure that we are taking every action that will engender unity and will be in consonance with our constitution,” he said
