He replaces Senator Samuel Anyanwu, who held the position and vied as the governorship candidate of the PDP in the Imo State governorship election held on November 11
Until his appointment, Koshoedo was the Deputy National Secretary of the party.
The PDP acting national chairman, Umar Damagum, announced the appointment after the NWC meeting on Tuesday.
Damagum explained that Koshoedo’s appointment is pending the determination of the case before the Enugu High Court.
“We decided that the Deputy National Secretary should take over in an acting capacity pending the resolution of the court case. We also direct parties involved in the court case to stand down action for the party’s due process, Damagum stated.
Damagum disclosed that there are conflicting court orders.
Recall that the Enugu High Court ordered Sam Anyanwu to stop parading himself and directed Damagum to recognize Sunday Udeh-Okoye as party national secretary.
