JUST IN: PDP confirms former Senate President Wabara as Board of Trustees chairman

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has officially appointed Adolphus Wabara, a former President of the Senate, as the substantive chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT).

Additionally, Ahmed Makarfi, a former Governor of Kaduna State, was named the BoT Secretary, succeeding Kabir Turaki, the former Minister of Special Duties.

The appointments were confirmed at the conclusion of the 76th BoT meeting held at Wadata Plaza in Abuja on Tuesday.

Speaking after his appointment, the PDP BoT Chairman warned against the dangers of Nigeria morphing into one a party state.

His words: “A lot has happened; a lot is happening; this is the time to hit the ground running since all the judgements have come and gone.

“Our role as members of the BoT, the main organ of this party, is to ensure that this party did not die. If PDP goes under, definitely democracy will go under in Nigeria.

“We know that there are plans to turn this country into a one-party state but that will be only when we allow it.

“So we must fight for democracy in Nigeria. No body owns this party but other parties are owned. Here, we follow due process democratically.”

Wabara, who said there were so many issues happening within the party, added that it was time to address them.

“Some people are blaming us for not taking disciplinary actions on time; of course that has always been the bane of the party.

“We look at faces before we take the action. But some of us, especially the BoT, we are always objective.

“Anything that goes outside our constitution will create problems; we should strictly abide by our constitution,” he said.
