The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has passed a solid unanimous vote of confidence on the chairman and executive officers of the national caretaker committee of the party.
Rising from a meeting at the Musa Ya’Adua Centre, Abuja, the meeting, presided over by the Chairman of the BoT, Senator Walid Jubril, also gave the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee the green light to continue its good works of striving to reposition and transform the PDP to its winning ways ahead of the 2019 general elections.
A communiqué signed by the BoT Chairman, Senator Walid Jubril, which conveyed the position of the party, also indicated that the forthcoming National Convention of the PDP would be held in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
“To ensure a credible, transparent, free and fair National Convention, the BoTs resolved that a new National Convention Planning Committee be constituted by the National Caretaker Committee, and approved by the National Executive Committee (NEC),” the communiqué stated, adding that “the BoTs will facilitate the raising of adequate funds for the party”.
The BoT further “mandated its Reconciliation Committee to continue with all good efforts of reconciling all aggrieved party members”, and “urged all PDP governors to continue pursuing positive programmes of good governance so as to clearly project the people-oriented manifesto of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”.
The communique advised the National Caretaker Committee to, as soon as possible; convene the meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) in order to approve proposals on the way forward for party.
Members of the Board of Trustees (BoT) in attendance at the meeting, last Thursday, were the National Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ibrahim Mantu, former National Chairmen, Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo, and Prince Vincent Ogbulafor, amongst others.
