PDP National Headquarters sends Delegation to intervene in crisis rocking its Plateau chapter

The PDP National Headquarters has sent a Delegation to intervene in the crisis that hit the Plateau chapter of the party last week.

The crisis broke out last week, with the State Chairman, Damishi Sango, and his Deputy, Amos Gombi, suspended from Office over alleged misappropriation of campaign funds.

The two Officials were also accused of misusing funds raised to assist people displaced by violence in the state.

Other allegations include open disregard for other Executive Council members and elders of the party.

Sixteen members of the State Executive Council, who took the action, appointed Chris Hassan, Vice Chairman of the party in the Northern Senatorial District, as Acting Chairman.

The Newsroom learnt the National Mediating Committee is led byTheophilus Dakas-Shen, the National Vice Chairman, North Central Zone.

Alexander Mwolwus, a PDP elder in the state, while speaking with NAN on Monday in Jos, disclosed that the meeting with the National Mediating team was billed for Monday evening.

“The Dakas-Shen-led Mediation Committee is already in Plateau for the meeting with all the stakeholders of the party, especially the State Executive Council Committee. The goal is to see how we can restore sanity to the party,’’ Mwolwus explained.

The State Executive Committee had, on Monday morning, ratified the suspension of the duo. 65 members, out of the 72-man expanded Executive Council Committee, ratified the suspension and endorsed Hassan’s leadership.

The Monday meeting also set up a 7-man Committee to investigate the allegations against the suspended Officials.

“Shortly after ratifying the suspension, the Committee visited our Governorship Candidate, Jerry Useni, and briefed him on the development,” Ben Shignugul, Vice Chairman of the party in Plateau Central Senatorial Zone, said.
