07 June 2016, 13:21

Abuja -  The Board of Trustees (BoT) of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has formally handed the reigns of authority to the Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee, reports Punch.

The handing over ceremony was done on Tuesday at the party’s national secretariat, Abuja.

Former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, who did the handover said said the party is strong and is working towards ensuring a successful National Convention which would produce leaders who in turn would lead the party to victory in 2019.

Secondus enjoined party leaders at all levels to go back to their localities and rebuild the party because all politics is local.

Chairman of the BoT, Sen. Walid Jibrin said the BoT never took over the party.

He said what the board did was to hold the assets and liabilities of the party in trust.

He appealed to party members to cooperate with the committee to deliver on its mandate.
