Chuks Okocha in Abuja
The embattled National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu, has been replaced with the Deputy National Chairman (North), Ambassador Illya Damagum, in compliance in deference to the Benue High Court that restrained him from office.
Damagum has stepped in as national chairman in acting capacity pending the outcome of the case of anti party against Ayu.
The acting national chairman has in the meantime summoned a meeting of PDP National Working Committee (NWC).
In a brief acceptance speech, Damagum said the NWC would review some of the issues in the party.
Ayu was earlier at the national secretariat of the party, where he held meetings with select members of the National Working Committee (NWC).
