The details of the meeting between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) and the Reconciliation and Strategy Committee of the party have emerged.
Speaking with reporters after the meeting in Abuja on Thursday, Chairman of the committee and former Senate President, Bukola Saraki said the committee would meet with everybody to ensure that the party is united.
He added that every member of the party has a role to play in the reconciliation move and the progress of the opposition party.
Saraki said, “We are going to reach out to everybody. Everybody matters. Everybody has a role to play. As I said yesterday, we started the process with the former president.
“Yesterday was with former governors and deputies. Today, we are meeting with BOT. We are reaching out to former leaders of the national assembly, founding fathers.
“Next week, hopefully, we will have sessions with women and youths to bring them together on issues of reconciliation and more participation and other issues.”
On his part, the chairman of the PDP BoT, Walid Jubril, said the former senate president and other members of his committee cannot be bought.
He added that with the caliber of people on the former senate president’s team, the PDP would come out stronger ahead of the 2023 polls.
The chairman said the party’s BoT would give the committee the necessary support for it to excel, adding that the board had given its recommendations to the committee to help it perform better.
He said: “We are giving them 100 percent support to carry out this assignment. They are fearless.
“They should not fear anybody and no issue of money should be involved in this exercise.
“We trust Saraki. We know he is the kind of person that cannot be bought by anybody. So, we will fully support him and continue to give him our 100 percent support.”
