Wabara Replaces Jibrin As PDP BoT Chairman, Tambuwal May Quit As Party’s Governors Forum Chair

Former Senate President Adolphus Wabara has replaced ex-Chairman of the Board of Trustee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin.

Wabara was named acting Chairman of the BoT during the ongoing meeting of the board in Abuja. Before his new appointment, Wabara was the Secretary of the BoT.

Also, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State may quit as Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum as there are ongoing appeals to him to step aside. He is expected to be replaced by a Southern Nigeria Governor.

The moves are obviously aimed at pacifying the South Nigerian caucus of the party especially the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and his camp so they can work for the Presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, in the 2023 general elections.

Senator Walid said his resignation was to curb the crisis in the party and make sure that the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, emerges president in 2023.

Senator Jibrin announced his resignation at the ongoing meeting of the Board of Trustee at the Party headquarters in Abuja.

PDP has been enmeshed in serious crisis since the emergence of Atiku as the Presidential candidate and the nomination of the Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.

The camp of Governor Wike has been demanding the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu, the National Chairman of the party, as part of efforts to resolve the crisis.

However, party stakeholders especially from the North, were said to have prevailed on the BoT Chair and Governor Tambuwal to vacate their position to give South an inclusion.

The BoT meeting, which is expected to be followed by the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party, also expected to take place today, was still ongoing as at the time of filing this report.
