The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has named Setonji Koshoedo as its acting National Secretary of the party.
The decision was taken by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
Koshoedo was previously the Deputy National Secretary and will now assume the role of the National Secretary pending the outcome of a legal case currently before the Enugu High Court.
The announcement was made by the PDP acting National Chairman, Umar Damagum, following an NWC meeting held on Tuesday.
Damagum explained that Koshoedo’s appointment was necessary to ensure the smooth functioning of the party in the midst of the ongoing legal proceedings.
“We decided that the Deputy National Secretary should take over in an acting capacity pending the resolution of the Court case,” Damagum stated.
“We also direct parties involved in the Court case to stand down action for the party’s due process,” he said.
Damagum further disclosed that the appointment was made in light of conflicting court orders regarding the position of the National Secretary.
