Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin, has denied claims that some chieftains of the party are seeking the registration of Advanced Peoples Democratic Party (APDP) as a plan B.
He said no such plan exists for now and if it comes up at any time it has to be tabled before all the critical organs of the party, like the BoT, the National Assembly caucus, the league of ex-Ministers and other key stakeholders.
“We’ve never met to discuss anything like that because we are still pursuing our appeal at the Supreme Court so people must be careful what they do,” he said.
“Any group of persons has the right to approach the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to seek registration of a political party. However, nobody has the right to register another party that would be in conflict with an existing one”.
Senator Jibrin pleaded with party stakeholders and members across the country to exercise patience and wait for the outcome of ongoing consultations being spearheaded by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
