The chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Walid Jibrin, has reiterated that the party will provide a fair playing ground to all the aspirants seeking elections into national leadership position of the party in the forthcoming national conference.
This is just as he said, the position of the national chairmanship of the party remain zoned to the south and any aspirant from the zone is free to contest if qualified.
According to the BoT chairman, the need to further stress this fact is premise upon the information that a sectional meeting of the South West board of trustees was reported to have appointed only 3 aspirants for the position of the national chairmanship of the party and said to have discarded the rest aspirants.
But addressing a press conference yesterday in Kaduna, Senator Jibrin said, “ I want to state clearly that the meeting in which such decision was taken was never in the instant of the national Board of Trustees and that we cannot afford to hold such meeting now as done in South West.”
According to him, the BoT has the intension of holding its Board meeting embracing all the aspirants in the South to appeal for peace, unity, and success of our party in the forthcoming convention scheduled for the 9th December, 2017.
“In the South-West, we have two BoT members contesting for the Chairmanship and who should never be in a meeting where such sensitive decision was taken.
“I will like to urge all BoT members in all the zones not to undertake such meetings without first intimating the BoT Chairman. I have invited Chief Shuaibu Oyedokun, to a national caucus to explain what led him to champion that exercise.
“I want to further advise all other organs of our party to be extra careful not to rush to any one sided decision. All aspirants must exercise restraint of give and take and await for proper guidelines from the National Working Committee.
“I want to assure all aspirants to the various positions in the National Convention that they will be given full and fair play. Never again will our party witness any impunity. Count me out in any game that deliberately exclude any aspirant from fair participation. The delegates of our convention should be allowed to decide in accordance with set up rules of the party, “ he stated.
