PDP crisis: BoT convenes emergency meeting to rescue Atiku’s campaign

As part of a plan to rescue the campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, following the boycott of its campaign by some aggrieved governors of the party, the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party will this week meet to deliberate on the crisis rocking the party according to reports.

The report noted that the advisory body is worried by the growing dispute between the party and loyalists of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and may ask the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu to resign.

Although details of the meeting and date were sketchy as of the time of filing this report, the immediate past BoT chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin, disclosed to The newsmen on Monday that members of the board were truly disturbed as the crisis showed no sign of resolving.

Against the backdrop of calls for Ayu to resign, the BoT is expected to take a categorical stand on the matter, including possible demand for Ayu’s removal in the interest of the party.
