Protesters stormed the national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the second day in a row but this time, demanding the removal of the National Financial Secretary, Abdulahi Maibasira, for alleged anti-party activities.
The protesters, who stormed the Legacy House, Maitama Abuja used by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party as an alternative secretariat, were from Niger state, the home state of Maibasira.
The protesters accused Maibasira of conniving with the All Progressives Congress-led State Government to undermine the party.
According to the protesters, the protest was organised to draw the attention of the national body to the alleged anti-party activity of Maibasira, whom they claimed was working with a former PDP leader in the state.
They also vehemently opposed what they alleged is an attempt to impose the former state Chairman of the PDP in the state, Tanko Beji, for another tenure against their preferred choice of Mukhtar Ahmed.
It was unclear whether those who are being accused are physically present at the national secretariat as at the time of filing this report.
