PDP governors reject Ahmed Gulak
Hours after a former Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Affairs, Ahmed Gulak, stormed the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to take over as its acting chairman, governors elected on the party’s platform have rejected him, saying his actions are regrettable and condemnable.
The governors stated this in a Communiqué issued at end of a meeting in Abuja.

The governors, who said they are aware of the judgement of a court in Abuja concerning the position of Prince Uche Secondus and ceding the office of the acting national chairman to the North East, however said PDP’s constitution has enough provisions for that and that the necessary process has been put in motion.
The governors also said appropriate organs of the party will soon meet to elect a national chairman for the party from the appropriate zone.
