Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has appealed to members and stakeholders of the party to remain calm over Tuesday resignation of seven national deputy officers of the party.
The call was made through the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State.
Tambuwal urged all aggrieved members of the party to remain calm as efforts are been made by the forum members to intervene on the matter.
“The Governors hereby call on all members of the party and indeed all stakeholders to remain calm in the face of the developments.
“We plead with all aggrieved persons and those with the interest of the PDP at heart to keep their gun powder dry.
“Efforts are being made in consultation with members of the PDP Board of Trustees and other stakeholders to resolve all contending issues.”
According to Tambuwal the PDP Governors’ forum had scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss the affairs of the party and the way forward.
