Damagun, Wike in Our Midst Cancerous—Protesters Storm PDP Secretariat Demand Suspension

A group of protesters affiliated with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Reform Vanguard gathered at the party’s headquarters in Abuja to press for the suspension of Amb. Iliya Damagun and FCT Minister Nyesom Wike.

Additionally, they called for the resignation of Umar Damagun, the acting national chairman of the PDP.

The demonstrators convened at the party’s secretariat on Thursday morning, just prior to the scheduled National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the PDP.

Their primary demand was the suspension of Wike, citing allegations of anti-party activities.

“The time has come for the NEC to act decisively. Amb. Iliya Damagun must be removed from his position as acting national chairman, in accordance with the provisions of our party’s constitution.

“He 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.

“Furthermore, we cannot turn a blind eye to the continuous presence of Mr. Nyesom Wike within our ranks. His romance with the APC has been handsomely rewarded with his appointment as minister of the FCT and as such, his stay is a slap in the face of every loyal member of our party.

”If the party fails to take decisive action against those who have betrayed our trust, then it risks losing the faith and support of it’s loyal members across the country.”
