07 January 2016, 20:54

Abuja - Former Special Adviser on Political Matters to ex- President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak has asked members of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to meet and elect a new BOT Chairman as the tenure of the Acting Chairman has expired, reports Daily Trust.

Gulak had on December 30 announced that he had assumed duties as the National Chairman of the party in line with the December 16 judgment of a High Court sitting in Abuja, which ordered Uche Secondus to vacate office as the Acting Chairman of the party.

Gulak said BOT members should endeavour to attend the January 14 meeting of the board so that they can elect a new Chairman.

He stated that the party’s leadership organs including the BOT, National Executive Council (NEC) and National Working Committe (NWC) were not properly constituted and that the expiration of the BOT chairman’s tenure in August 2015 necessitated his call as part of plans to reposition the party.

He said the January 14 meeting of the party’s BOT was called so that the leadership of one of the party’s main organs is properly constituted.

Haliru Bello  is presently acting as the party's BOT Chairman

Gulak added that he has not resumed work at the Wadata national headquarters of the party in Abuja because workers of the party were on annual holiday and would resume on January 14.
