From Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja

The chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Adolphus Wabara, has said the opposition party must find urgent solutions to the challenges confronting it.

Wabara, who stated this, in his opening remarks at a meeting of the PDP BoT, on Thursday, in Abuja, said “deliberate litigations” have made it impossible to resolve issues surrounding the appointment of a substantive national chairman, as well as controversy over the office of national secretary.

Nevertheless, Wabara said it is imperative for the PDP to urgently resolve all the issues “guided by transparency, fairness, and the best interests of our party and its members”.

His words “I must address a matter that weighs heavily on our collective conscience, the leadership of the party as it stands. Recalling the events that led to the ousting of the former Chairman of the Party in person of H.E. Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the current Acting Chairman has spent over a year in office; whereas as the usual practice of the party, the region from whence the national officer hails from should have produced a viable candidate to complete the tenure of the former national officer.

“Furthermore, the contentious issue surrounding the office of the National Secretary has regrettably sown seeds of discord within our party. The ambiguity surrounding this position has led to confusion and internal strife, hindering our collective efforts to pursue our noble objectives.

“The solutions to these two challenges are clearly imbibed in our party’s constitution but deliberate litigations have made the application of these constitutional solutions impossible.”
