Ikenga Ugochinyere, a member of the House of Representatives representing Ideato Federal Constituency in Imo State, has vehemently called for the resignation of Umar Damagum, the Acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Ugochinyere, along with 59 other members, insists that Damagum must step down to pave the way for a more effective leadership that can navigate the party’s affairs adeptly.


Appearing on Channels Television’s Politics Today program, Ugochinyere criticized Damagum for his alleged allegiance to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and his failure to convene a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting since assuming the role following the removal of Iyorchia Ayu as PDP Chairman by the court.

Highlighting Damagum’s shortcomings, Ugochinyere pointed out the absence of post-election assessments and engagement with party members, particularly lawmakers elected on the PDP platform.

He lamented the lack of cohesive leadership under Damagum’s tenure, emphasizing the detrimental impact on the party’s ability to function as a robust opposition to the APC.

Ugochinyere stressed that the time has come for Damagum to step down, echoing the sentiments of PDP governors who perceive the party’s current state as stagnant. He criticized the party’s silence on political issues in Rivers State, allowing external interventions, particularly from President Bola Tinubu.

Among the grievances aired by Ugochinyere against Damagum is the alleged appointment of APC members as caretakers in some PDP-controlled states, further exacerbating internal tensions within the party.
