Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State says governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors are not docile on the leadership crisis it is facing.
Rather, he said, they were discussing and would come up with solutions to the crisis rocking the party as soon as possible.
A group led by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike are aggrieved over the fact that the presidential candidate (Atiku Abubakar) and Chairman (Iyorchia Ayu) as well as Campaign DG are from the North.
After hosting the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), Tambuwal added that they engaged with the BoT, with the belief that they would come up with solutions to the problem facing the party.
“We have engaged with them and I believe that what they are likely to come up with will be a solution to the problem we have.
“Be rest assured that as governors of the party , we are also talking to ourselves on the way forward.
“Very soon the governors forum will meet and we will come up with what we feel should be the solution and the way forward for the party.
“We are all interested in working together for an objective and that objective is for the party and Nigerians of good will,“ he said.
Tambuwal said the PDP governors were working to take over power in 2023.
“We must work together to solve our internal problems, forge ahead and prosecute the electoral battle and by the grace of God we will have victory,” he said.
He commended BoT Chairman, members and for its initiative as the conscience of the party .
“Whenever there are issues of this nature, the Board of Trustee steps in, it is part of their functions in the party, constitutionally speaking,” Tambuwal said.
