PDP NEC: Damagun’s Survival Not A Victory For Wike – Moro


Senator Comrade Abba Patrick Moro, the Senate Minority Leader representing the Benue South Senatorial District in the 10th National Assembly has declared that Amb. Umar Lliya Damagum’s continued position as the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Acting National Chairman was a win for the party.


The lawmaker who spoke on Saturday clarified that no one had lost; rather, the choice to move forward with the party was accepted by all pertinent parties.


Senator Moro’s reaction came amid rumours in some quarters that Amb. Damagum’s survival in the face of calls for his resignation was a victory for Nyesom Wike, the former governor of River State and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and a setback for Atiku Abubakar.


Senator Moro stated that the PDP’s actions and inactions should not be attributed to Atiku and Wike, emphasising that the issue at hand was PDP rather than a contest for victory or defeat for any individual.


“We cannot translate the entirety of PDP’s activities and inactivities to Wike and Atiku, out of millions of other members of the party across the country who also have their own thinking and reasons for being in the party.


“The whole issue was not about Wike or Atiku, or victory for Wike or defeat for Atiku, the issue was existential.


“We came together and reasoned together, that in the present scenario where Nigerians are hurting due to the maladministration of the APC government, what do we do to provide an alternative platform for Nigerians to look up to? In that circumstance, we decided to thread with caution so that we dont throw away the baby with the bath water,” he said.
