PDP governors condemn Gulak’s attempt to assume party’s chairmanship

Ahmed Gulak

Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have kicked against moves by a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, to assume office as the party’s acting national chairman.

Rising from a meeting in Abuja on Wednesday, the governors said the invasion of the party headquarters by Mr. Gulak on Wednesday was “regrettable and condemnable”.

The position of the governors, which was contained in a communique issued at the end of the meeting, the PDP governors’ forum took cognizance of the judgment by a court in Abuja which ordered the current acting chairman, Uche Secondus, to vacate office for any other person from the North-East zone of Nigeria.

“Our party constitution has enough provisions for that and the necessary process has been put in motion,” they said.

Justice Yusuf Baba of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory had on December 16 directed Mr. Secondus to vacate office and revert to his position as deputy national chairman of the party.

The court also said Mr. Secondus should handover the leadership of the party to either Mr. Gulak, who was the plaintiff to the suit, or any other qualified person from the north eastern part of the country.

The office of national chairman of the PDP became vacant after former chairman, Ahmadu Muazu, resigned his position last year.

PDP governors on Wednesday said the appropriate organs of the party will meet soon to elect a national chairman of the party from the appropriate zone.

The governors also congratulated two of their colleagues, Nyesom Wike, and Dave Umahi over their victory at the Supreme Court, which affirmed their elections as governors of Rivers and Ebonyi States respectively.

  • Niger Deltan

    No northerner to rule the PDP as national chairman.
    The people of Nigeria Delta will not allow a northerner to govern the country. No governor/senators from Niger Delta must agree to Ahmed Gulak as national chairman or any other from the north, except from the SS or SE only.
    Nyesom Wike, and Dave Umahi and their southern colleagues in Cross, Enugu, Abia, Delta, Bayelsa, Imo etc must not be allowed to represent Niger Delta under a northener-led PDP party, totally unacceptable to Biafrans.
    Hail Nnamdi Kanu. Hail Biafra.
