PDP NEC meeting: We’ll Lead Party’s Funeral – Ex-Minister, Chidoka

by Victor Ndubuisi

Osita Chidoka, a former minister of aviation and party member, has issued a warning ahead of today’s scheduled meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) that any decision made there might make or break the party.

Chidoka warned the PDP governors and the National Assembly Caucus in a statement he released on Wednesday night that the PDP NEC’s attempt to modify the party’s constitution might result in a “disaster that could sink the ship of the party.”

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the NEC meeting later today would discuss a number of issues, including whether Umar Damagum, the acting National Chairman now in place, should be kept in that role or replaced.

Recall that in March 2023, a court in Benue State suspended Iyorchia Ayu for an extended period of time. As a result, Damagum, the PDP Deputy National Chairman, North, was appointed as the party’s interim National Chairman.


Ayu’s term must be completed by an elected member from the North Central, according to the party constitution, while several party stakeholders support Damagum as the next substantive chairman.

But according to Chidoka, “if at the NEC meeting, the Party fails to uphold the constitutionality and respect for the rules of the party, then I and other progressive members will not hesitate to lead the pallbearers to the funeral of the party as we know it.

“The party must put an end to its submission to filthy lucre and macabre dancing to the music of unprincipled pipers.

“It must return to the role of providing good governance to its states and principled opposition that Nigerians can trust.

“If the party’s ship is not steered away from the gigantic iceberg prominent on its path, the consequences will be dire.

“It is a matter of grave urgency to save the soul of the party that ushered and stabilised democracy in Nigeria.”
