The Board of Trustee (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has ratified the party’s Deputy National Chairman (South), Yemi Akinwonmi as the Acting National Chairman of the party in line with the party’s constitution.
This was the fallout of the suspension of former Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus by the Rivers State High Court two days ago.
Chairman of the BoT, Senator Walid Jibrin announced this decision after an emergency meeting of the Board, in Abuja.
He said, “Since our last meeting, there have been several meeting by stakeholders to ensure sanity returns to the party.
“The BoT approved Elder Yemi Akinwonmi as acting National Chairman.

“That the meeting endorsed the agreement reached during the August 10 NEC meeting which proposed October as the date for the elective Convention.”
