In a fresh move to end internal crisis rocking Nigeria’s opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the party on Thursday named Yemi Akinwonmi as its National Chairman, bringing to an end the reign of embattled former National Chairman, Uche Secondus.
Akinwonmi was the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party.
Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesperson, made the announcement after the closed-door meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) in Abuja.
Recall, the NWC and the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the PDP on Thursday held separate emergency meetings at the PDP National Secretariat, Abuja.
The NWC meeting which was presided over by Akinwonmi, had in attendance most of its 19 members.
Others at the meeting were the Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Suleiman Nazif, National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, and the National Youth Leader, Sunday Ude-Okoye, among others.
