The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party has elected Senator Walid Jibril as its substantive Chairman.
This is even as the party elected the former Minister of the Foreign Affairs, Chief Ojo Maduekwe as the new Secretary of the BoT.
Walid was the party’s acting national secretary before his appointment.
The meeting was held at the PDP national secretariat in Abuja, on Monday.
It was gathered that even though the national chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, tried to bury the hatchet with the aggrieved BoT members, some of them were still not satisfied and may be trying to conclude the election of new leadership before asserting themselves.
According to reports, one of their grievances is an alleged move by the Sheriff- led NWC to amend the constitution of the party in order to muzzle and control the BOT and thereby subject it to the whims and caprices of the NWC”.
