PDP BoT: Jonathan remains tight-lipped, Fari declares interest

The Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will meet on Monday, May 25 to discuss the replacement of Chief Tony Anenih.

Mr. Anenih tendered his resignation letter on Wednesday.

Chief Anenih resigned “on personal grounds.”

The meeting is expected to hold at the Presidential Villa, Abuja at 8pm.

President Goodluck Jonathan, Friday, said once President-elect Muhammadu Buhari is inaugurated on May 29, his main commitment will be to involve religious and ethnic leaders across Nigeria on the need to allow peace reign.

Jonathan made the statement while receiving the 2015 Epitome of Peace Award by the Field Superintendent of The Apostolic Church Nigeria, Federal Capital Territory Field, Apostle John Buzu, at the Aso Rock villa, Abuja.

Jonathan said he took the choice because of his strong belief that Nigerians can only practice their various religions in an atmosphere of peace.

Reports emerged Thursday that the President was eyeing the position of the Chairman of the BoT.

However, if his recent statements are to be taken as indicators to his plans for after office, Mr. Jonathan does not intend to remain in the corridors of Nigerian politics on a partisan level.

“We need peace in this country, no matter our religious persuasion or belief. That will be one of my main commitments when I leave office: to reduce discrimination in this country based on religious divides or ethnicity. I believe I will have so many apostles that will follow me to do that.”
