The Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has once again became victorious as the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) retained its acting Chairman, Umar Damagum.

This was the resolution announced by the party at the end of its 98th meeting on Thursday.

The National Caucus had passed a vote of confidence on the under-pressure chairman who had been told by the PDP House of Representatives caucus to resign.

Damagum has been accused of pandering to Wike with raging calls for his resignation. It was expected that he would be asked to go during the NEC meeting to allow for a substantive national chairman.

However, the NEC followed up on the decision of the national caucus which was held on Wednesday, with the resolution commending the leadership of the party.
