Fresh Crisis Hits PDP as Loyalty of Acting National Chairman Questioned
A fresh crisis has rocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as questions are being raised about the loyalty of the party's acting national chairman, Umar Ililya Damagum. Sources in the camp of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar allege that Damagum is working for former Governor Nyesom Wike, who recently made it to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's ministerial list. This further exacerbates the political damage caused by Wike's rebellion against the PDP in the last general elections. Atiku's loyalists have moved against Damagum, accusing him of misappropriation of funds.

FCT, Abuja - An emerging report has confirmed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has plunged into a fresh crisis that is linked to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Governor Nyesom Wike, who recently made it to the ministerial list of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

There are indications questioning the loyalty of Umar Ililya Damagum, the acting national chairman of the PDP.

As reported by TheCable, sources in the camp of Atiku strongly believe that Damagum is working for Wike, the former governor of Rivers state.

It is no news that Wike's rebellion against the PDP alongside his G-5 cohorts did a lot of political damage to the party, especially at the general elections.

Wike said he worked for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu instead of his principal, Atiku Abubakar.

It is believed that Wike's rebellious move led to Atiku losing to Tinubu in what might well be his last shot at the presidency since his first attempt in the early 90s.

However, there is still a chance of redemption as he is currently in court challenging Tinubu's victory at the presidential election petition tribunal in Abuja.

A source in the camp of Atiku revealed that Damagum and Gov Ahmadu Fintiri, the governor of Adamawa, where Atiku hails from, have been alleged of "hobnobbing" with Wike, Daily Trust reported.

Meanwhile, Atiku's loyalists like Sule Lamido, former governor of Jigawa, Babangida Aliyu, former governor of Niger, and Adamu Maina Waziri, former minister -- have moved against Damagum.

Damagum has also been alleged of misappropriation and mismanagement of funds left behind by the former chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
