PDP Confirms Wabara BoT Chair, Urges Tinubu to Tackle Insecurity

The Peoples Democratic Party, Board of Trustees has confirmed the Former President of the Senate, Adolphus Wabara, as the substantive Chairman of the party’s BoT.

Wabara was appointed as the interim Chairman of the PDP BoT in 2022, following the departure of the previous BoT chairman, Walid Jibrin, who resigned from his position.

PDP BoT also urged President Bola Tinubu to address worsening insecurity in the country and the continuous fall in the value of the Naira.

Former Governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi, was also appointed as the BoT Secretary, replacing former Minister of Special Duties Kabir Turaki.

Wabara, said the BoT expressed deep concerns over the biting economic hardship, high cost of essential life-enhancing commodities, and alarming food scarcity in the country.

He stated, “The BoT is alarmed by the worsening insecurity in the country as evident in the rising cases of mass killings, banditry, kidnap for ransom, and acts of terrorism by assailants who are emboldened by the manifest laidback attitude of the APC administration to issues of security, especially in the last nine months.

“The BoT is appalled by the monumental corruption and unbridled treasury-looting in the APC administration especially the looting of billions of Naira meant for palliatives for poor and vulnerable Nigerians.

“The BoT is seriously worried over the fall of the Naira to an abysmal N1,500 to the Dollar, incessant increase in the pump price of fuel which now sells for over N700 per liter with long queues in various parts of the country.

He reassured the Nigerian public that despite the challenges, the PDP remains united, stronger, and more determined in its commitment to working for the well-being of Nigerians and defending their interest at all times.

Earlier, the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party demanded the resignation of Senator Samuel Anyanwu as the party’s National Secretary since he’s the party’s governorship candidate in the November 11 election in Imo State.

The BoT Chairman, Senator Adolphus Wabara, made the demand in a statement on Saturday, citing the constitutional provision of the party, which disallows a candidate from holding dual positions.
