The Chairman of Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, has made it clear that though he will remain in the party till he die, but that the way the north is holding all top positions in the party is not fair to other parts of the country.
In a statement today, August 23, Senator Jibrin insisted that only the North cannot produce the presidential candidate, National Chairman and BoT Chairman.
“I still maintain my stand on that statement PDP is a democratic and National party that cater for all Nigerians it’s not sectional but loved by all Nigerians.
“As a PDP BoT Chairman I must say the truth and nothing but the truth no matter any criticism. I don’t fear anyone but God and true agenda of our party. I will add that I stand strongly on my toes. I have been a true member of PDP since its inception in 1998.”
Jibrin added, “I will remain in PDP until my death. I still maintain that the BoT is eagerly waiting for the report of the Reconciliation committee headed by Governor of Adamawa state and Professor Jerry Gana. Thereafter, the BoT will thoroughly discuss it and inform the public accordingly no more, no less.”
According to the elder statesman, the BoT will continue to discuss with all aggrieved party members, including those in states, Zones, and nationally.
He called on members of the PDP to concentrate more on how to win all elective positions in 2023.
Presently, the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, have been involved in a cold war after the presidential primaries.
Governor Wike insisted that the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, should resign as part of the conditions to accept the reconciliation moves by the leaders of the party.
