The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Governors Forum, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has called for calm within the party’s fold amid the crisis in the National Working Committee (NWC).
The governor made this known in a statement on Tuesday through his Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Muhammad Bello, Tambuwal after the resignation of the seven national officials of the PDP.
Tambuwal who is the Governor of Sokoto state assured party stalwarts and followers that the PDP Governors Forum has never been detached from the myriads of challenges the party faces.
He also maintained that all the governors under the party have been doing their utmost best in the background to bring the problems under control, saying “the PDP-GF had scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss the affairs of the party and the way forward.”
He claimed that the PDP remains the only “hope of the nation for good governance, which must show an example to Nigerians and also take advantage of the current disarray in the APC and its rudderless government.”
The Governor added that, “we plead with all aggrieved persons and those with the interest of the PDP at heart to keep their gun powder dry, as efforts are being made in consultation with members of the PDP Board of Trustees and other stakeholders to resolve all contending issues.”
