Ahead of the National Executive Committee meeting scheduled for today, governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party have warned the party members against illegality.

Today’s NEC meeting is set to address whether the acting National Chairman, Umar Damagum, should retain his position or be replaced.

Damagum, who was the PDP National Chairman (North),   became the acting  National Chairman following the suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, in March last year by a court in Benue State.

The court gave the judgment following a suit filed by Terhide Utaan, a PDP member in the Igyorov ward of  Gboko Local Government Area of the state.

The PDP caucus meeting in the House of Representatives on Tuesday ended in disarray, with lawmakers sharply divided between those supporting Damagun’s tenure and those opposing it.

On Wednesday, governors elected on the platform of the party met  at Akwa Ibom State Asokoro’s Governor’s lodge in Abuja ahead of Thursday’s (today) NEC meeting

Shortly after the meeting, the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum and Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, affirmed the commitment of the forum to upholding the party’s amended 2017 constitution.
