Adolphus Wabara, a former Senate President, has been named acting Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees.

He was named following the resignation of Walid Jibrin.

He has also been named the Political Adviser of the National Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.

Wabara, who was before now, the Secretary of the PDP BoT, would be appointed to the presidential campaign council of the PDP, sources said.

Mr. Wabara hails from Abia State.

There have also been calls for Mr Ayu to resign.

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State had stated the resignation of Mr. Ayu as a criterion for which he would support Atiku in the 2023 general elections.

Wike and many southern leaders in the party are demanding that members from that region be reflected in the party’s hierarchy ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The party’s NEC meeting is underway and is being attended by Messrs Atiku Ayu, Wabara, Jibrin and other party leaders.
