He said, “The party is one and is strong. On behalf of members of the former National Working Committee of the PDP, I am here to handover to the Caretaker committee chairman, we are ready to work with you, we are ready to cooperate with you.”

Also speaking at the event, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT), Sen. Walid Jibrin said the BoT only took charge pending when the leadership crisis will be resolved, adding that the board was the only constitutional organ of the party following contradictory court orders against the national caretaker committee and the dissolved national working committee (NWC).

The BoT had announced its decision to preside over the affairs of the PDP based on the litigations involving the faction led by Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff, former national chairman of the party.

“We, the BoT are entrusted under the constitution of our party to be in charge of the assets and liability of PDP. Today, the BoT remains the only legal body now in the whole set up and that is why we are here to play our role,” Jibrin said.
