The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin, has said the party is not in a hurry to reconstitute the board.
In a statement on Monday in Kaduna, Jibrin said the process of reconstituting the board will commence as soon as the party meets with the requirements in the amended constitution of the party.
He explained that the process of adopting the amendment which empowers every state of the federation and the FCT to legitimately have one person representing them and five members from each of the six zones in the BOT is about to be concluded.
â€œI am working very hard with the state chairmen and our six national vice chairmen in order to bring forth very able, responsible, experienced and respected members into BoT.
â€œOnce the exercise is concluded, the new BoT members and already existing members will now be inaugurated,â€ the statement said.
Jibrin explained further that he does not want to rush and call for BoT meeting now without successfully concluding the exercise that will ginger new members of the BoT who shall be the conscience of the party.
“Bringing in new members with high knowledge of the party, well experienced, able and men and women of high integrity stocked with honour and integrity should never be done in a hurry.
“Please bear with me, we are unlike other parties without BoT,â€ he said.
The BoT chairman commended leaders and members of the party for making the party proud and the “darling of Nigeriansâ€.
He said: “The BoT is ever ready to stand against any plot to frame PDP leaders including serving governors, past ministers, past governors and all members.”
