PDP Chieftain Urges Umar Damagum to Resign for Party’s Sake

Dr. Farah Dagogo, a prominent member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has called on Umar Damagum, the acting chairman of the party, to step down from his position for the benefit of the PDP at all levels.

Dagogo, a former member of the National Assembly from Rivers State, commended the outcome of the 98th meeting of the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC), seeing it as a testament to the party’s resilience in overcoming challenges.

Before the NEC meeting, there were speculations about potential crises within the party as it aimed to address leadership issues, particularly concerning the North Central Zone’s role in selecting a substantive National Chairman to complete the tenure of former Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.

Speaking after the NEC meeting, Dagogo highlighted the timely sacrifices made by those genuinely concerned about the party’s well-being to maintain its stability.

He credited the political maturity and sagacity of the party’s leaders, including former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for navigating the party through potential turmoil.

Dagogo expressed confidence that by the adjourned date in August, Damagum would realize that stepping down from his position would serve the party’s best interests by allowing more purposeful and result-oriented leadership to emerge.

He emphasized that the tensions leading up to the NEC meeting were fueled by individuals seeking to undermine the party’s progress. However, the party, under the guidance of leaders like Atiku Abubakar, avoided succumbing to these pressures, maintaining its integrity and cohesion.
