PDP Appoints Jibrin As Acting Bot Chairman

The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has replaced the embattled chairman of the Board, Haliru Bello Mohammed with Senator Walid Jibrin.

Mohammed is currently standing trial for his alleged involvement in the $2.1 billion arms purchase scam, allegedly spearheaded by the immediate past National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki who is also standing trial over the scam.

Until his elevation on Wednesday, Jibrin was the Secretary of the BoT and he is to occupy the position in acting capacity pending the appointment of a substantive chairman.

He still remains the substantive BoT Secretary for the time being.
The decision changing the leadership of the BoT was conveyed by Jibrin at a briefing in Abuja on Wednesday.

It was also listed in a communiqué issued after a meeting of the BoT held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

The party organ also declared its unflinching support for the Northeast zone of the party to occupy the position of substantive National Chairman, to replace Prince Uche Secondus who is the acting chairman.

A court in the Federal Capital Territory had in November 2015, ordered Secondus to vacate the position within 14 days, but Secondus said he has filed an appeal against the order.

Addressing journalists on the development, Jibrin said the Northeast zone would meet next week to pick a national chairman to replace Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu who resigned in May last year.
