JUST IN: Details of PDP Board of Trustees Meeting Emerge

The details of the PDP Board of Trustees Meeting in Abuja have emerged.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that some of the party leaders at the meeting included BoT Chairman, Senator Adolphus Wabara; former national chairman, Senator Ahmed Markarfi; former BoT chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin; Senator Ben Obi, and Senator Stella Omu, among others.

The meeting, which was held at the PDP national secretariat in Abuja, was chaired by Senator Wabara.

The BoT members discussed a wide range of issues, including the recent judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) over the February 25 presidential election, the state of the nation, and the party’s preparations for the 2023 general elections.

On the PEPC judgement, the BoT said it “rejects the recent judgement of the PEPC and commends the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for following due process of the law.”

The BoT also decried the state of the nation, noting serious concerns over what it called excruciating hardship, worsening insecurity and a general sense of apprehension and despondency across the country caused by the hasty implementation of ill-planned policies of the APC administration.

However, the BoT assured Nigerians that despite the challenges, the major opposition party remains united, stronger and more determined to continue to lead the charge to rescue democracy and return the nation to the path of credible elections, Rule of Law, national cohesion and economic prosperity.

The leaders called on Nigerians to remain steadfast and support the PDP in its quest to rescue Nigeria from the misrule of the APC administration.

The communique reads, “The BoT restates its rejection of the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) in upholding the declaration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of the February 25, 2023 Presidential election, in spite of the evidence clearly pointing to the contrary.

“The BoT is also monitoring and studying the outcome of cases in various election courts with regards to their level of adherence and respect to the Rule of Law and evidence before such court.

“The BoT is resolved to take urgent steps to resists the current manifest desperation by the APC to turn Nigeria into a One-Party State.

“The BoT Commended the PDP Presidential Candidate, His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar for following due process of the law in his quest to retrieve the Presidential Mandate freely given to him at the February 25, 2023 Presidential election.

“The BoT is confident in the capacity and courage of the Supreme Court to ultimately and decisively right the wrongs and correct the manifest errors contained in the Judgment of the PEPC in the interest of the unity, stability and corporate existence of our Country.

“The BoT expressed serious concerns over the excruciating hardship, worsening insecurity and general sense of apprehension and despondency across the country occasioned by the hasty implementation of ill-planned policies of the overtly insensitive APC administration.

“The BoT is seriously worried over the continued fall in the value of the Naira arising from the ill-implemented policies of the APC with attendant devastating negative effect on the economy resulting in agonizing high costs and unbearable pressure on families.

“The BoT laments that the APC is pushing Nigerians to the wall and worry that the level of poverty and anger in the polity over the suppressive rule of the APC is capable of snowballing into a serious crisis if not urgently addressed.

“The BoT observed that nation is currently in a precarious situation under the APC and Nigerians look unto the PDP for solution and direction at this time.”
