Members of the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, rose from a crucial meeting in Abuja yesterday with a vow to continue to work hand-in-hand with other organs of the party with a view to ensuring victory for the party in future elections
The BoT members of the main opposition party, similarly pledged their loyalty to the party’s National Working Committee NWC, led by Prince Uche Secondus till the December 2021 national elective convention when new leaders are expected to emerge.
The Secretary of the BoT and former President of the Senate, Chief Adolphus Wabara said these while addressing Journalists at the end of the meeting in Abuja.
The BoT, Wabara insisted, will work hand-in-hand with other organs of the party to ensure victory for the PDP in future elections.
On the issue of zoning, particularly the 2023 presidential ticket of the PDP, Wabara pleaded for little patience, saying it is rather premature to discuss the matter now.
His words, “This party is not owned by any person, so by the time we resolve all the issues in the party, we shall come up with a zoning formula.
“As you know, if you go through the constitution, you will realise that PDP is a party of zoning.
“But when it comes to political exigences, you will realise that anything can happen.
“That is why we can amend our constitution at will to win an election.
“I cannot place my finger on this zoning thing. I don’t have the authority. The relevant organs of the party will come up with their position when the time comes”, he said.
Also speaking, former Deputy Senate President, Ibrahim Mantu noted that as a party affair, zoning would be dealt with appropriately at that level
