Ambassador Ilia Damagum, the acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been urged to resign by the forum of former State House of Assembly candidates.

Under the auspices of the Peoples Democratic Party State House of Assembly Candidates Forum, or PDP-SHACF, it declared that stepping down would allow a legitimate Chairman to emerge from the North Central area in accordance with the party’s constitution.

Its National Chairman, Hon. Salaudeen Lukman, urged on strict adherence to the party’s constitution in a statement made accessible to journalists on Friday. He did this to prevent a lengthy conflict that could further damage the party’s chances.

The statement, which was co-signed by Muhammad Gidado Musa, Kebbi State; Vice Chairman (North), Hon. Mahee Umar Gatawa (Sokoto State), and National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Abraham Olusegun Adeleye (Ekiti State), urged the party to sanction disloyal members who worked against it in the last general election.


It voiced dismay at the PDP’s ongoing crisis, blaming it on the National Working Committee’s failure to act upon several early warning signs.

All of the previous candidates for the general election of 2023 participated in the forum, which voiced dissatisfaction with the PDP-NWC’s poor crisis management practices and stressed the need for immediate action to realign the party.

The statement reads: “Despite our patient waiting, it is disappointing that the NWC has taken no substantial action. As a result, in accordance with the resolutions reached during our meeting on April 9, 2024, we believe it is necessary to take additional steps.

“It is incumbent on us to remind the public that those members of the party who are currently causing conflict have benefited greatly from the party’s agenda in their political careers.

“From humble beginnings as councillors to positions as chairmen, Governors, members of the National Assembly, and even national officers, they have had the party’s support.

“It is terribly regrettable that these same individuals are now contributing to the perpetuation of the leadership crisis, which is threatening to sink the party’s ship in the attempt to satisfy their pay masters.”


The forum emphasised that certain PDP members and supporters openly support opposition parties and accused them of engaging in anti-participation actions in Rivers, Lagos, Ekiti, Enugu, Oyo, Benue, Kebbi, and other places.
