The acting Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees (BOT), Walid Jubrin, has advised the PDP National Chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff against office elongation beyond three months which ends May.
Walid Jubrin gave this advice to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff while addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja. He said that the advice became necessary “following calls by praise singers who were calling on Sheriff to extend his tenure.”. He explained that following the unanimous approval of Sheriff by PDP Governors Forum, the National Caucus, BOT and the National Executive Committee, the tenure, as well as that of the National Working Committee (NWC) that his tenure should terminate on May 21.
He stressed that, “The recent courtesy calls to Sheriff and the presentations being made, especially calling on him to continue beyond the stipulated three months tenure is an invitation to trouble, anarchy and the return of impunity in PDP”. He urged Sheriff to toe the path of honour and his integrity will be more respected.

The acting Chairman of BOT also advised the party to adhere to Sen. Ike Ekweremadu Post-Election Review Committee’s recommendation that the PDP should seek its 2019 presidential candidate from the Northern part of the country.
He warned of the dangers of not adhering to the recommendations aimed at compensating the North “for the obvious violation of the zoning arrangement in the 2011 election.”
