Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BOT), Senator Walid Jibrin has described as unfortunate and condemned in strong terms the formation of a splinter group within the party.

Recalled that a group made up of aggrieved PDP members following the just conducted had on Wednesday, held a press conference in Abuja disclosing that it has opened a parallel national office to challenge the Uche Secondus led National Working Committee.

Senator Jibrin, who addressed a press conference in Kaduna, said the BOT of the party will never allow a situation where people would be planted for the purpose of destroying the party as it happened in the past.

The BOT chairman said when he met with the group in Abuja however, they showed remorse and assured him they will review their actions as they have a lot of respect for him.

He said what the party needs is for all its members to unite and support the new chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, and his new executive to move the party forward and ensure a victory for the PDP in 2019.

The BOT chairman described the press conference held by the splinter group as unfortunate saying it violates the process of settling disputes within the party as enshrined in the PDP constitution.

“While condemning the group which held the press conference, I am calling on them to reverse by following the proper mechanism of settling dispute as enshrined in the constitution and to remind them that Secondus came to power as a will of God and through the verdict of delegates,” he said.

The BOT chairman called on those who contested elections with Secondus as chairman to accept what he called the ‘will of God’ and the supremacy of the party and to shun away from dragging the party to court saying this is tantamount to a violation of the party’s constitution.

“The BOT will no longer tolerate deliberate violation of the constitution and any attempt to ridicule and undermine the party through any planned or sponsored litigations,” he added.

Jibrin said the PDP BOT has also reviewed the outcome of the last convention of the party and has thrown its weight behind the Governor Seriake Dickson Reconciliation Committee which he says is doing a good job.

He said the BOT will also establish its own internal committee to further enable the board take mature and common stand always as the conscience of the party
