JUST IN: Crisis Rocks PDP as Protesters Storm Headquarters, Demand NWC Resignation [PHOTOS]

A group of protesters under the aegis of the PDP National Back Up on Monday stormed the headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja, demanding the resignation of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

The protesters, who were dressed in black and white with the inscription “PDP National Working Committee NWC must resign,” arrived at Wadata Plaza, the national secretariat of the party, around 10 am.

They chanted slogans such as “NWC must go,” “PDP NWC has failed,” and “We want change.”

The leader of the protest, Salau Olusola, accused the NWC of being responsible for the party’s defeat in the 2023 presidential election.

He said the NWC failed to discipline former Rivers State Governor and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike’s camp for alleged anti-party activities.

“Wike and other members of the G-5 camp were involved in anti-party during the 2023 elections, yet Damagum-led NWC refused to discipline them. So, they have divided the party into camps. This to us is unacceptable.”

He added, “Other reasons include ongoing internal disputes, factionalism, or lack of cohesion within the party can prompt calls for new leadership

“Poor electoral results may lead members to question the effectiveness of the leadership. And allegations of corruption, unethical behaviour, or a failure to uphold the party’s principles can trigger calls for resignation.”

Olusola also accused the NWC of failing to reconcile aggrieved members of the party.

He said the party is divided into factions, and the NWC has failed to do anything about it.

A member of the protesters, Ami Gift, said the NWC has failed to reconcile aggrieved members.

“They are irresponsible and we want them out now,” she said.
