Chief Damishi Sango, Plateau State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday formally stepped aside by handing over to his deputy, Mr Amos Gombe.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Sango’s resignation was announced by retired Lt.-Gen. Jeremiah Useni, the leader of the party in the state.
Useni, also PDP governorship candidate in the 2019 general election in the state, disclosed this at a stakeholders’ meeting in Jos on Friday.
“Sango is no more our state chairman as directed by the National Secretariat but now a member of PDP Board of Trustees (BOT).
“Mr Amos Gombi, his deputy, is now the acting chairman of PDP in the state. This was done to settle whatever crisis we were having.
“Left for us the leaders of the party in the state, there is nothing like PDP I and PDP II because we are one big family undivided.
“The allegation that Sango collected money from the headquarters for 2019 general elections was not true because three of us signed for whatever stipends given to us by the National Secretariat.
