The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says there is no change in the leadership composition of the party at the national level.
This is contained in a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja, by Mr Victor Kwon, the PDP National Legal Adviser.
Kwon assured members and supporters of PDP that Prince Uche Secondus, still remains the Acting National Chairman of PDP.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the statutory organs of the party, the NWC, National Caucus, Board of Trustees (BoT) and the National Executive Council (NEC) will be meeting next week.
“They will meet to deliberate on some developments, including the replacement, from the North-East of Alhaji Adamu Muazu, who resigned as the National Chairman of the party.”
Kwon said that the replacement would be in strict adherence to the provisions of the constitution of PDP as specified in Section 47(6).
“Until then, the status quo remains, which means the Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, remains as the Acting National Chairman?
“It must be reiterated that all relevant stakeholders of our party, including the PDP Governors’ Forum, National Caucus and the Board of Trustees (BoT) as well as our leadership structures at all levels are united behind the current NWC.
“They are all united behind the current NWC in the efforts to rebuild, reposition and strengthen our party for the challenges ahead.”
