Over 60 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers in the House of Representatives have threatened to dump the party if Acting National Chairman Mr Umar Ililya Damagum does not step down immediately.

They called for his immediate replacement by someone from the North Central in accordance with the party’s constitution, among other requests.

Ikenga Ugochinyere, a member of the House Representative from Imo State, and five others issued the threat during a press briefing at the National Assembly complex in Abuja on Monday.

He said the Acting National Chairman, who has been allegedly engaging in anti-party activities, sold the party “for a plate of porridge.”

According to the lawmakers, they were speaking on behalf of 60 members of the PDP in the House.

“PDP can’t be handed over to the APC. APC officers can’t emerge from our party officials in Rivers or any of the 10 states with alleged imposition of APC interest. Let the world know that why they are hell-bent on imposing APC officials as our party caretaker members is to fulfil a planned bigger plot,” Mr Ugochinyere said.
