The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party has appointed Umar Damagum, to oversee the affairs of the party in acting capacity.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba, announced this at a press conference on Tuesday, at the party’s secretariat.
Damagun will replace Iyorchia Ayu as the national chairman of the party.
Recall that a Benue State High Court in Makurdi has ordered the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, to stop parading himself as the chairman of the party.
The judge, W. I Kpochi, on Monday, issued an interim injunction restraining Mr Ayu from parading himself as the national chair of the PDP.
