… says situation skewed against South
As the crisis rocking the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party worsens, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin, says that the North cannot continue to hold on to top positions in the party.
Jibrin in a statement on Tuesday said only the North cannot produce the topmost positions of the presidential candidate, National Chairman and BoT Chairman.
His statement read, “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 any one but God and true agenda of our party. I will add that I stand strongly on my toes I am a true member of PDP since it’s inception in 1998.”
Jibrin’s statement comes on the heels of a meeting between Governor Nyesom Wike and some of his loyalists in Europe.
It was learnt that the meeting was aimed at deciding their next line of action after their insistence that Ayu should resign as PDP national chairman is not yielding any positive result.
PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Wike have been involved in a cold war after the presidential primaries.
But Jibrin in his statement explained that as a founding member of the PDP, he would never accept any unholy criticism by any one.
“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,” he said.
He also said the BoT will continue to discuss with all aggrieved members of the party, including those in states, zones and nationally.
“I advise that we should concentrate more on how to win all elective positions in 2023,” he stated.
