The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has directed the chairman of the Zonal Working Committee (ZWC), Hon. Theophilus Dakas Shan, to take charge and oversee the activities of Nasarawa state chapter of the party until further notice.
This was contained in a letter dated PDP/DOM/GF.2/VOL.1A/20/096(B) 02 July 2020, addressed to Hon. Shan, and made available to newsmen on Saturday in Lafia.
The letter which was equally signed by the party’s national organising secretary Col. Austine Akobundu (rtd) read “This is to formally inform you that the National Working Committee (NWC) of our great party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has directed that you and your Zonal Working Committee (ZWC) should perform your constitutional duty by overseeing the activities of the Nasarawa state chapter of our party until further notice.”
It continued ” Pursuant to section 26(2)(a) and (b) of our party’s constitution (2017 as amended) and may be assigned to you by the National Executive Committee (NEC) through the National Working Committee (NWC).”
The letter also directed the ZWC to maintain strict oversight on the conduct of the party’s primary exercise for the purpose of nominating the flag-bearer for the Nasarawa central state constituency Bye- election.
“By this letter, you are therefore to continue running the Nasarawa state chapter until NWC directs otherwise.
“The letter supersedes any other, and all stakeholders and necessary authorities are duly notified,” the letter said.
