The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made it clear that it had no intention of asking the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, to step down simply because Governor Nyeson Wike of Rivers State gave such action as a condition for the settlement of the crisis in the party.
Speaking to journalists after the meeting at the Wadata House national headquarters in Abuja, the Chairman of the Board, Walid Jibrin and Senator Abdul Ningi, said that the meeting was called to intervene in the crisis involving the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Governor Wike.
Leaders of BoT said: “we haven’t discussed anyone stepping down. What we discussed is to raise a committee. It is the Committee of the Whole. All BoT members are in the committee.”
When asked what grievances were discussed in the meeting, Ningi said, “I can’t tell you the grievances. We are going to meet Atiku to start the project.”
