The main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has held an emergency meeting of its Board of Trustees (BoT).
According to a communique signed by the BoT secretary, Senator Adolphus Wabara, the meeting was to stabilise and restrategise for the party to return to power in 2023.
The BoT members, after reviewing the progress so far made in reconciling various aggrieved persons in the party, will consult with the PDP Governors Forum on measures towards solidifying the party.
The resolution read in part: “This emergency meeting has been particularly necessary at this time of heightened political and economic tension in the country, to ensure the stability of all the organs of our party and to place them on alert and in sharp focus as we prepare to take over national political power once again for the best overall interest of our nation.”
“The board is therefore fully committed not to allow any mischievous trends or strain to clog the working relationship between all members, particularly at the top management level of the party.
“With a determination to do all that is necessary to ensure that we fulfil the overwhelming desire of the vast majority of the people of Nigeria and that the PDP regains national power in 2023, the board is unequivocally committed to ensuring that normalcy and peace prevail through all the organs of the party to permit the development and implementation of well-structured plans,” it said.
