Protesters on Wednesday flooded the premises of the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja, throwing their support for the Acting National Chairman of the Party, Umar Damagun; and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike.

The protesters, who displayed placards with various inscriptions, pledged support for Wike and Damagun, alleging that some people within the PDP are trying to cause disaffection among the leadership.

The protest occurred barely an hour before the meeting of the PDP Governors Forum, and 24 hours before the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party, where issues regarding the leadership of the PDP are expected to be discussed.
