PDP govs, others meet on Tuesday



Governors, Board of Trustees members (BoT), National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will on Tuesday meet in Abuja.

The meeting is at the instance of the 28 ‘wise’ elders set up at the BoT meeting.

A source, who is a member of the committee, said the BoT decided to have an enlarged meeting to avoid each caucus involved in the party from having different opinions.

BoT chair, Walid Jibrin, who confirmed the holding of the meeting in an interview with newsmen, said preparations were on top gear to enable them have what he described as a peaceful meeting.

“We are meeting on Tuesday in Abuja. We would be able to tell ourselves the real truth about the party. We have to sit up and take decisive decisions. Nobody should be allowed to bully us,” the BoT chairman said.
