The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ forum have congratulated the Governors of Rivers and Ebonyi States, Barrister Nyesom Wike and Engr. Dave Umahi on their Supreme Court victory.

A statement signed by the Director General of the forum,  Osaro Onaiwu, reads: “We congratulate our brothers and colleagues, Barr. Nyesom Wike and Engr. Dave Umahi over today’s victory where the Supreme Court affirmed their election as the Governors of Rivers and Ebonyi States respectively.”

They also commented on the recent leadership crisis rocking the party.

The Governors said “the invasion of the party headquarters today by Ahmed Ali Gulak who reportedly assumed the chairmanship of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) is regrettable and condemnable.

“We take cognizance 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.
