The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin, has said the north cannot hold all top positions in the party.

Naija News reports that the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State have been involved in a cold war after the presidential primaries.

Angered by his snub for the party’s vice presidential candidate, Wike has called on the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, to honour an earlier agreement and resign.

In a statement to journalists on Tuesday, Senator Jibrin insisted that only the North cannot produce the presidential candidate, National Chairman, or BoT Chairman.

He said, “I still maintain my stand on that statement PDP is a democratic and National party that cater for all Nigerians it’s not sectional but loved by all Nigerians.

“As a PDP BoT Chairman I must say the truth and nothing but the truth no matter any criticism. I don’t fear anyone but God and true agenda of our party. I will add that I stand strongly on my toes. I have been a true member of PDP since its inception in 1998.”

Jibrin added, “I will remain in PDP until my death. I still maintain that the BoT is eagerly waiting for the report of the Reconciliation committee headed by Governor of Adamawa state and Professor Jerry Gana. Thereafter, the BoT will thoroughly discuss it and inform the public accordingly no more, no less.”

According to the elder statesman, the BoT will continue to discuss with all aggrieved party members, including those in states, Zones, and nationally.

He called on members of the PDP to concentrate more on how to win all elective positions in 2023.
