Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, has resigned.
The BoT chairman announced his resignation at the ongoing Trustees’ meeting today, September 8, in Abuja.
Jibrin said that he resigned as his own sacrifice for the resolution of some of the knotty issues confronting the opposition party, especially the leadership crisis.
There have been growing demands for the resignation of Jibrin and the party’s National Chairman, Iyorcha Ayu, since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as presidential candidate.
The presidential candidate, party chairman and Trustees’ chairman are from the North.
