BREAKING: PDP BoT Chairman, Jubrin Resigns As Ex-Senate President Wabara Takes Over

The Chairman Board of Trustees (BoT) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, has resigned.

 

Jibrin stated this at the ongoing PDP BoT meeting in Abuja.

 

He said this is to ensure the PDP candidate, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, wins the 2023 election.

I am stepping down as the chairman of BoT. I am stepping down to make it easier for all of us,” he said at a BoT and National Executive Committee meeting on Thursday in Abuja.

 

Former President of the Senate of Nigeria, Adolphus Wabara, has since been appointed as the new BoT chairman.

 

Jibril’s resignation occurred amid agitation by the southern caucus of the PDP for the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to step down for a southerner.

 

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and a former PDP Deputy National Chairman, Bode George, amongst other southern members of the main opposition party had consistently demanded Ayu’s resignation but the former senator maintained that he won’t resign.

 

Earlier, Jibril had said it is unfair that PDP produced presidential candidate in the person of Atiku Abubakar (Adamawa State), and Ayu (Benue State) both from the north.

 

The Nasarawa-born chieftain had said he was willing to sacrifice his office for peace to reign in the party.
