Sokoto State Governor and the Director General of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) National Campaign Management Committee, Aminu Tambuwal, has revealed that governors on the platform of the party are working seriously to come up with a solution to the present crisis rocking the party.
Speaking after hosting the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) yesterday, Tambuwal, who also doubles as Chairman PDP Governors Forum, expressed hopes that they will come up with a solution to the problem facing the party.
Tambuwal stated, ‘I would like to thank the BoT Chairman, members and his team for this very important initiative. We all know that the BoT is the conscience of the party and whenever there are issues of this nature, the Board of Trustees steps in, it is part of their functions in the party, constitutionally speaking.
“We have engaged them and I believe that what they are likely to come up with will be a solution to the problem we have.
‘Be rest assured that as governors of the party, we are also talking to ourselves on the way forward and very soon the Governors Forum will meet and we will come up with what we feel should be the solution and the way forward for the party.
‘We are all interested in working together for an objective and that objective is for the party and Nigerians of good Will, because we believe we have had enough of the government of APC.
‘We are working to send out APC and their government come May 2023, it is a collective responsibility. Of course, we must apply balms since we all believe that what we have is not good enough, we must work together to solve our internal problems, forge ahead and prosecute the electoral battle and by the grace of God we will have victory.’
Earlier in his remarks, the Chairman of PDP BoT, Senator Adolphus Wabara also hinted that Nigerians will see a more united PDP before the campaign starts.
He explained that they (BoT) are going to meet the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, the party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and also his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa on the way forward.
He said, ‘Our aim is to get into the Aso Villa, for PDP to get into the Aso Villa in 2023, we need everybody to come on board.
‘We are still moving around, in six days time, the campaign will be inaugurated. We hope and pray that before then Nigerians will see a more united PDP. We are doing this not for us, not for the Chairman of the Governors Forum or anybody, we are doing this for Nigerians.
‘Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to deliver them from what we are experiencing with the ruling party as we speak.
‘We are going to meet the National Chairman of the party, we will also meet our candidate Atiku Abubakar, we are also meeting the Vice Presidential candidate Ifeanyi Okowa, who will call upon us any moment.
‘We have also met with some of the governors. We started from my state, Okezie Ikpeazu, we moved to Enugu to meet Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, from there we met Seyi Makinde of Oyo, we met with Jerry Gana, and we are digging around to find solutions.
‘We are looking for solutions for all of us to come together and win the election in flying colours,‘ he said.
