PDP crisis: BoT convenes emergency meeting to rescue Atiku’s campaign.
He said, “There is a (BoT) meeting this week but I don’t know the date yet. What we are interested in is that we must speak with one voice and stay with the party’s plans and objectives to enable us to win the elections in 2023. We must encourage our members to rally other Nigerians to come out and vote for Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa.”“We must not be afraid to speak the truth. We must speak truth to power, though not everybody will like it. Whatever will affect our chances of winning the elections must give way.”He added, ‘’But as I will always say, we will get to resolve all these problems. The PDP is a party and we have problems here and there and no family would want to disintegrate. We are on course.”“Nobody is leaving the umbrella. The governors have said repeatedly that they will remain in the party. That already is a victory for the party. But for them to remain, there could be some constitutionality, frayed nerves will be pacified, which is what they are doing now.Wike had insisted that Ayu must resign if his camp must reach a truce with the candidate but Atiku had said he had no powers to remove the chairman.“Most of the NWC members are in support of the rerun to fulfill all righteousness and cure whatever wrong that made the court make such sweeping decisions. We have to be careful not to fall into the risk of what happened to the All Progressives Congress in Zamfara and Rivers states.
