The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the PDP, Senator Walid Jubril has dismissed claims that Governors elected on the platform of the party are the only ones driving the party.
Jubril who was on Channels Television Wednesday morning said there were several party organs which are responsible for most of the decisions that are steering the PDP in the direction of the future.
Admitting that Governors have done well in their funding of the party and the execution of responsibilities assigned to them, Jubril said no reason exists for anyone to infer that elected state governors are busy having their way.
The leadership of the PDP, the BoT Chairman explained, has been actively involved in every mainstream decision that has been taken to date.
On the issue of the presidency, Jubril lauded the committee on zoning for staying away from the matter and restricting itself to its core mandate.
He said that the National Executive Committee of the party would on the 30th of this month deal with the issue of the presidency, and convey its recommendation for adoption by the convention.
Secondus… Fight of a lifetime
The Senator urged Prince Uche Secondus to back off, saying the outgoing National Chairman had severally in the past been in the forefront of efforts to stop party members from using the courts as a last resort.
Jubril reiterated that the victory of the PDP in 2023 was more critical than any other issue that has been placed on the table.
He added that the party has spoken, stressing that as good party men, it was his expectation that Secondus would go along with the position of the PDP at this time.
Secondus is the longest serving Chairman of the party at the centre. His tenure was expected to expire in two months time.
But the common position in the former ruling party appears to suggest that it is time for him to leave.
Jubril said party members are estactic that the National Convention is coming on stream at this time.
He said there would be laughter at the end of the day and assured Nigerians would see wonders.
