PDP group cautions BoT
The PDP-Renaissance Initiative (PRI) has raised the alarm over what it described as partiality playing out in the race for chairman.
It unchecked the trend could endanger its chances in the 2019 polls, the group said.
The intra-party group asked the PDP Board of Trustees to borrow a leaf from the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee that has so far exhibited maturity, neutrality and decorum in the contest.
The intra-party group urged the PDP to force aspirants to resign their membership of party organs, while Board of Trustees (BOT) members should eschew the display of open support for particular candidates.
The statement by group’s Publicity Director. Felicia Osoba, pointed out that unlike its present posturing, the BOT should be seen to be neutral, unbiased and impartial in an intra-party contest.
The PRI wondered why BOT member Prof. Jerry Gana is openly chaperoning and campaigning for Prof. Tunde Adeniran.
Recalling the recent illegal pruning of contestants to two by a section of the trustees, PRI said that the issues it was raising had cast an unhealthy on the integrity of the entire PDP BOT.
