30 October 2014, 08:00Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The National Working Committee of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has confirmed the resignation of Enugu and Delta Chairmen of the party.

Vita Abba and Peter Nwaobos respectively are no longer party members, prompting the ruling party to direct their deputies to immediately take over the affairs of the party in their respective states.

“Following the earlier resignation of the Chairmen of Enugu and Delta state chapters of the PDP, the National Working Committee (NWC) has directed the Deputy Chairmen of the chapters to immediately take over the affairs of the party in their respective states. The National Working Committee at its meeting on Wednesday nullified the appointment of state chairmen for Enugu and Delta and directed the deputy chairmen to convene a meeting within two weeks to elect new chairmen in accordance with the provisions of the PDP constitution,” Olisa Metuh National Publicity Secretary of the party, said in a statement issued in Abuja.

Meanwhile the Metuh also assured that the agreement reached with all the governorship aspirants in Adamawa state, zoning the governorship position to Adamawa Central would be fully respected.

“The National Working Committee expects that only aspirants from Adamawa Central will present themselves for the governorship primaries ahead of the 2015 general elections,” Metuh said.

“The national leadership of the party promises that there will be free, fair and transparent congresses in the state in keeping with the party’s strict adherence to the dictates of the principles of internal democracy and the PDP constitution.”
