The Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has named the former National Legal Adviser of the Party, Dave Iorhemba, as the new Deputy National Secretary.
This was made known through a statement by Dayo Adeyeye, the Party’s National Publicity Secretary.
According to the statement, “the Decision was taken without prejudice but in view of the fact that the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) is no longer too pressured with legal matters since the Supreme Court Judgement of`July 12, 2017, that led the PDP to victory but instead, requires extra hand in the running of administration ahead of the forthcoming Electoral National Convention.
“In view of the above, Rt. Hon. Barr. Dave Iorhemba has been re-assigned to serve as the Deputy National Secretary with effect from Wednesday, 28 September, 2017. Also, the National Chairman, Sen Ahmed Makarfi, CON, has appointed the Immediate Past National Legal Adviser, Kwon Victor, Esq as his Special Adviser (Legal Affairs).
“This clarification became necessary to correct misconceptions and contradictory narratives in some sections of the media.
“The PDP is one big family and every member is enjoined to participate in the rebuilding and repositioning processes to move our great Party forward.”
