The Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday approved the nomination of the former Acting National Chairman of the party, Haliru Bello Mohammed, as its acting Chairman.
Ike Ekweremadu, Deputy Senate President, told State House Correspondents at the end of the BoT meeting in Abuja that Mohammed, who was the only nominee for the position, would act in that capacity until a substantive BOT chairman is elected.
He also announced that the acting Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, would continue in that capacity until a substantive chairman was elected.
He further said that the executive powers of the party still resided with the National Working Committee, NWC, while the BoT would act as the conscience of the party and advice the NWC on how to move the party forward.
“We are determined that we will pull our ideas. Most of what remains as the founding fathers of the PDP is in the BoT.
“Therefore we will make sure that we use their collective wisdom to also reach out to all our members in all the states of the federation so that we will bring the party back to the grassroots.
“We are sending this party back to the people and with what we have seen in the last 16 years our relationship with the people of Nigeria we are confident that the PDP will still remain the largest party in Africa and certainly the party of choice in Nigeria,” Ekweremadu said.Follow Us on Social Media
