PDP Crisis: Ex-BoT chair Jibrin warns against division

Walid Jibrin

The immediate past Board of Trustee chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Walid Jibrin said the party is finished if it allows division to thrive.

Jibrin who gave this warning in an interview with The Punch on Monday stated that the BoT will be meeting this week to discuss the challenges rocking the party.

He added that the members of the board were truly disturbed as the crisis showed no sign of abating which necessitated the meeting.

However, the PDP chieftain said he’s yet to confirm the date and time of the meeting, but it will take place this week.

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.”

Against the backdrop of calls for Ayu to resign, the BoT is expected to take a categorical stand on the matter, including possible demand for Ayu’s removal in the interest of the party.

Speaking on the decision to be taken by the BoT on Ayu’s resignation call, Jibrin enjoined party organs to remain united even as he took a swipe at the National Working Committee over what he called the “division” in its fold.

“We must not allow division like we are now witnessing in the NWC. All other organs must understand that the party constitution is supreme,” he said, warning that “Once the NWC members accommodate loopholes in the administration of the party, the PDP is finished.”
