Walid Jibrin Speaks on PDP Intraparty Squabbles

The Chairman of Board of Trustees of the peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP Walid Jibrin, says it is unfair for the party to have both its presidential candidate and the national chairman from the northern region of the country.

The PDP chief, who did not mind giving up his position to fix the rift in the party, also said the main opposition will retain the presidential seat next year.

His comments came on the heels of the crisis in the PDP following its presidential election which saw Atiku emerging as the flagbearer.

The former vice president defeated Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State in the keenly-contested poll to clinch the ticket, a feat that kickstarted another round of crisis in the party.

While Wike in the wake of the election claimed he was cheated and accused the PDP of bypassing its laws in the poll, the Rivers leader was recommended, among others, as running mate for Atiku.
