Make Sure PDP Doesn’t Fail You, The Damagum Cautions by Clark

Posted by

Chief Edwin Clark, an elderly statesman, has called on Ambassador Illiya Damagum, who is serving as interim national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to step down from his position immediately rather than let the party crumble under his feet.

In an open letter he sent to Damagum on April 24, 2024, Clark made these claims and added that the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) displayed “obvious weakness” by letting the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, “bamboozle everyone in the meeting.” He further stated that “No one was ready to speak truth to power.”

“This is a clarion call on you, Mr. Acting National Chairman, to either sit up or do the needful by resigning from the position, so that the party does not collapse on you,” the older statesman remarked, expressing his disapproval of the party’s current situation under Damagum’s watch.

Accusations that Damagum was acting at Wike’s behest have been validated, according to Clark, by the party leadership.

The senior statesman bemoaned Damagum’s passivity over the PDP problem in Rivers State, including the caretaker committee list, the defection of PDP state lawmakers, and more.

“Some people say that Mr. Wike was instrumental in getting you appointed Acting National Chairman, so you should treat him like a boss,” he stated.
