“The NWC assures of its commitment in ensuring the continued stability, growth and success of our great party at all time,” the statement added.

The PDP is currently facing one of its toughest battles since the 2023 election as some stakeholders are calling for leadership change and suspension of Nyesom Wike, Minister of Federal Capital Territory over alleged anti-party activities.

Damagum has been in the eye of the storm since he became the acting Chairman, with the North Central geopolitical zone where Dr Iyorchia Ayu, suspended National Chairman hails from, insisting on completing his tenure.

However, it was gathered that those loyal to Wike in the PDP are working to retain Damagum as Chairman to complete the tenure of Ayu.
