Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Walid Jibrin, has again, echoed his position supporting Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on the alleged Northernisation of the party.
In a statement, on Tuesday, Jibrin affirmed that the party’s leadership hierarchy is truly pro-North.
“As a PDP BoT Chairman, I must say the truth and nothing but the truth no matter anyone’s criticism. I do not fear anyone but God and the true agenda of our party. I will add that I stand strongly on my toes; I have been a true member of PDP since its inception in 1998”, Jibrin emphasized.
He added: “Based on my earlier statement that the PDP cannot produce a Northern president, national chairman, BoT chairman all from the North for the 2023 presidential elections, I still maintain my stand on that statement.
“The PDP is a party that caters for all Nigerians; it is not sectional but loved by all Nigerians.
“Today, I am one of the trustees’ members of the party who remained in the party since 1998 that never changed to any party passing all positions in the PDP”.
Jibrin had on Sunday on a Channels Television’s programme, Sunday Politics, said it was unfair for the presidential candidate of PDP, Atiku Abubakar; its national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu; and himself to come from the North.
