The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum has condemned former aide to ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak for declaring himself as the party’s new chairman.

Gulak invaded the PDP secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, and named himself the party’s new leader.

The response of the PDP Governors Forum was contained in a Communique issued by its Director General, Earl Osaro after a meeting on Wednesday.

It reads:

“The invasion of the party headquarters on Wednesday by Ahmed Gulak, who reportedly assumed the Chairmanship of the PDP, is regrettable and condemnable.”

“We take cognisance of the judgment by the court in Abuja which ordered the acting chairman to vacate office for any other person from the North-East zone of Nigeria.”

“Our party constitution has enough provisions for that and the necessary process has been put in motion.”

Gulak earlier named himself Chairman on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, according to a statement released by his spokesman, Ochuba Emmanuel.

The former Jonathan aide had taken the PDP to court in November over its delay in appointing a Chairman after which an Abuja High Court ordered the acting Chairman, Chief Uche Secondus, to vacate the office within 14 days‎.
