Aggrieved PDP members seek Ojougboh’s removal as Southsouth vice chair

There was a protest yesterday at the headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the continued stay of Dr. Cairo Ojougboh as the party’s Southsouth vice chairman.

Protesting at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, New Peoples Democratic Party Reformation Coalition said the continued stay of Ojougboh as the party’s Southsouth  vice chairman would destroy PDP.

The group’s National Coordinator, Danelsi Momoh, said they were at the secretariat to protest against the activities of Ojougboh.

Momoh called on the party national leadership to curtail the activities of Ojougboh, which, according to him, was aimed at hijacking the party for his personal interest.

He said if the activities of Ojougboh in the Southsouth was not checked, it would weaken the operations of PDP.

The coordinator also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate politically-motivated killings in the country, especially in the Southsouth.

“While we salute President Buhari’s commitment to bring corrupt politicians to book, it is apt that all cases of politically-motivated killings are investigated.

“The characters responsible for running the armed gangs that carried out the killings are brought to book,” he added.

The group, according to Momoh, also called on Ojougboh to step aside from his position until investigated.

Addressing the protesters, Chinwe Nnorom, the PDP Head of Publicity commended the protesters for their peaceful conduct, but

promised that their protest message would be presented to the party secretariat.
