NEC Fallout: PDP Chieftain Calls for Ugochiyere’s Suspension, Dispels Tenure Elongation Narrative for Damagum


Comrade Daboikiabo Z Warmate, a staunch member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), seasoned political strategist and leader of the Concerned PDP League (CPDPL), offered insights into the recent developments within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) following its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting. Comrade Warmate dissected and clarified the tenure elongation narrative for the Acting National Chairman and shredded Hon. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere over his attacks on the Acting National Chairman and the PDP NEC, while commending the NEC.

Comrade Warmate characterized the tenure elongation and North Central producing the National Chairman in the upcoming NEC meeting narrative as a calculated propaganda aimed at embellishing the truth within the party ranks. He clarified and emphasized the fact that, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in it’s 98th meeting neither discussed the issue of the National Chairman nor tenure elongation and the North Central producing the National Chairman.

The NEC agreed that, the issue will be discussed in their upcoming NEC meeting in August, so how would they have elongated Ambassador Damagum’s tenure or said the North Central would produce the National Chairman in their next meeting when they did not discuss anything relating to it, Warmate queried.

He claimed that, supporters of a certain politician who flies in from Dubai and feels he can take over PDP whenever he likes are the ones pushing this unpopular narrative. He also blasted the media for failing to do due diligence before going ahead to carry propaganda in guise of news.

Comrade Warmate further exposed the House of Representatives Committee Chairman on Petroleum downstream Hon. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere’s involvement in anti party activities and called for his suspension. He said Ugochinyere does not have the political and moral right to demand for the removal or resignation of the Acting National Chairman of the party.

He questioned the criteria used in making Ugochinyere the Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Petroleum downstream, being that, he is a first timer in the House and coupled with the fact that, he is not a member of the ruling party and also not from an oil producing Constituency; knowing fully well that, there are members of the Green Chamber from Imo and other Niger Delta States who are ranking members that are in the ruling APC which constituency produce oil.

He said, two things are involved; firstly, that Ugochinyere must have compromised the interest of PDP and negotiated at its detriment. Or secondly, that he allegedly used money to buy the position or both, for him to be given such juicy Committee Chairmanship in the House as a first timer. Otherwise, if he was to be considered for any Committee Chairmanship, it would have been “Information” for his noise making. Though, he is a lawyer, he didn’t study any of the laws related to oil like energy, gas or petroleum law.

Comrade Warmate alleged that, Ugochinyere is dinning, winning, bedding, pepper souping, ishewulizing and barbecuing with the ruling party, APC, and other self centered and retrogressive elements in the party that are sponsoring him; therefore, he should be suspended for anti party. He lost his voice all this while because, he was observing table manners.

Also the political activist clarified that, Amb. Damagum’s continued stay in office is not victory for Wike, G5 or anybody but rather a victory for PDP and those that wish PDP well. He added that section 47 (6) of the PDP constitution does not prescribe time limit for an acting capacity.

However, he commended and totally supported the decision of the PDP NEC, but expressed the fact that, he was not totally satisfied with their decision, but in their wisdom, they have done what is best for the party.
