The Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday said there was a systematic erosion of the gains made under the PDP administration in enhancing the credibility of the electoral process over the years .
It stated in a communique after its 65 th meeting that it was sad the way all those gains , according to it , were allegedly being distorted and eroded by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration .
Chairman of the PDP BoT, Senator Walid Jibrin , who read the communiqué, commended the party and its candidates in the 2019 elections , for bracing the odds and strengthening democratic rules and culture in spite of what he termed as the unprecedented level of militarisation .
According to him , the level of militarisation ran clearly against the letters and spirit of the judgment of the Supreme Court that said that the military had no business in the conduct of elections .
He stated that the PDP BoT was in support of efforts by the party ’ s candidates who had challenged or were going to challenge the outcome of their elections at the tribunal.
He called on the PDP members to remain calm , as, according to him , they would reclaim their ‘ stolen ’ mandates .
Jubrin said , “ The BoT also wishes to assure Nigerians and all members of our great party , especially those whose mandates were openly stolen , that the BoT stands by them at all times in the quest to reclaim the mandates freely given to them by the good people of Nigeria. ”
He added , “ The BoT notes with dismay , the systematic erosion of the gains made under the PDP administration in enhancing the credibility of the electoral process over the years , and frowns at the way all those gains are being distorted and eroded by the present administration .
“ The BoT calls on all Nigerians, especially our teeming supporters , to stay calm and be law – abiding , as we believe justice will take its proper place despite the traumatisation of the judicial arm of government by the present administration . ”
Some of the PDP BoT members who attended the meeting included a former President of the Senate, Senator Adolphus Wabara; PDP National Secretary , Senator Ibrahim Tsauri ; Senator Stella Omu ; a former Minister of Women Affairs , Hajia Zainab Maina ; Tanimu Turaki ( SAN ); a former PDP Secretary , Prof Wale Oladapo and a former Deputy Governor of Lagos State , Kofoworola Bucknor – Akerele.
