JUST IN: Protesters Storm PDP Secretariat, Demand Damagum’s Resignation, Wike’s Suspension

A key group in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) called Reform Vanguard has stormed the national secretariat of the party demanding the resignation of the acting National Chairman of the Party, Umar Damagum and suspension of FCT minister, Nyesom Wike.

The group besieged the party’s office when the meeting of the Board of Trustee was ongoing and members were arriving for the meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC).

The protesters were displeased at the presence of the Wike at the meeting of the National Caucus of the party on Wednesday, which was presided by Damagum.

Speaking to journalists amid protesting members who carried several banners, Usman Seidu, the convener said Damagun and Wike have “undermined our collective efforts and jeopardised our very existence as a formidable opposition force”.
