The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will meet this week to discuss and to put an end to the crisis rocking the party since the conclusion of its presidential primary.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the meeting is part of a larger plan to rescue the campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, following the boycott of its campaign by some aggrieved governors of the party.
It was learnt that the BoT is concerned by the ongoing crisis which is believed to be affecting its chances of winning next year’s election.
In an interview with The Punch, the immediate past BoT chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin, disclosed on Monday that members of the board were truly disturbed as the crisis showed no sign of abating.
He said, “There is a (BoT) meeting this week but I don’t know the date yet. What we are interested in is that we must speak with one voice and stay with the party’s plans and objectives to enable us to win the elections in 2023. We must encourage our members to rally other Nigerians to come out and vote for Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa.”
