Members of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday rose from a marathon meeting with one message – Ali Modu Sheriff must resign as national chairman of the PDP.
The Acting BoT chairman, senator Walid Jibrin, who presided over the meeting held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, spoke on behalf of the trustees.
According to Jibrin, as the conscience of the PDP, the BoT was in the best position to know the right candidate for the chairmanship of the party.
The trustees, he said were consulting with other organs of the party on how to ease Sheriff out from office.
“We are going to propose viable solution to this problem after we must have consulted with other organs and relevant stakeholders in the party”, Jibrin said.
He declined further comments.
The meeting was attended by Prof. Jerry Gana, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, Alhaji Shuaibu Oyedokun, Air Commodore Dan Suleiman, Senator Stella Omu, Senator Jonah Jang, Mrs. Josephine Anenih, Senator Adolphus Wabara, Abdullahi Kure and Maina Waziri, among others.
