PDP Gets a New National Party Chairman...See Who is

The leadership of the PDP has appointed a new National Chairman to champion the course of the party after the exit of the acting party Chairman, Uche Secondus.
Alhaji Ahmed Ali Gulak
The Political Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan in the person of  Alhaji Ahmed Ali Gulak has reportedly assumed the Chairmanship of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), with effect from yesterday, his spokesman, Ochuba Emmanuel said in a statement.
According to the DailyTrust, Gulak has also purportedly cancelled the planned congress being planned by the Uche Secondus led PDP.
 Emmanuel said in the statement sent by email that Gulak assumption of duty was based on the declarative judgment by the High Court in Abuja, on the 16th December 2015, which ordered Prince Secondus to vacate office as the Acting Chairman of PDP, not later than 29th December 2015, and hand over to Gulak or any other person from the North-East zone of Nigeria.
“The Court went further to make an Order of perpetual injunction against Prince Uche Secondus, restraining him from continuing to act in the office of the National Chairman of PDP. In disobedience to the court Order, Prince Uche Secondus did not vacate office, nor hand over to the plaintiff, or any other person from the North-east zone of Nigeria,” Emmanuel said.
He added that a detailed letter by his counsel to INEC and BoT of PDP also specified that Gulak is now the ‘authentic National Chairman’ of the PDP, pending the election of a national chairman.
He said: “Alhaji Gulak has also cancelled the congresses already scheduled by Prince Secondus, declaring it illegal as the National Executive Committee (NEC) did not meet to ratify the dates. He said new dates shall be announced in due course after a NEC meeting.”
He urged all PDP members across the country to remain calm and law abiding saying the party shall soon be rebranded.
But when our correspondent visited the PDP national secretariat in Abuja, yesterday, there was restriction of movement into the secretariat by security operatives.
