The meeting of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scheduled to hold Thursday has been postponed indefinitely.
This is the second time the meeting is being postponed. The one initially scheduled for December 18, 2015 was called off when it failed to form a quorum.
Secretary of the BoT, Senator Walid Jibrin, confirmed the postponement of the meeting in a telephone chat with our correspondent on Wednesday.
Jibrin said the postponement was to allow wider consultation among key party stakeholders, owing to the sensitivity of issues on the agenda.
He said, “We can no longer hold the meeting as scheduled because we discovered that we need wider consultation to enable us take far reaching decisions.
“We need time to hold consultations with our National Assembly Caucus, the National Executive Committee (NEC), the zonal caucuses, chairmen of state chapters and other key stakeholders.”
Jibrin had in December announced a January 14 date for the meeting, when the one scheduled for December 18 failed to hold.
The meeting was to set in motion machinery for the emergence of a substantive chairman of the BoT.
