The chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Walid Jibrin, says he would have abandoned the party if the Supreme Court had favoured the Ali Modu-Sheriff led faction.
The Supreme Court in Abuja had on Wednesday recognised Ahmed Makarfi as the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the PDP, in a long legal tussle that split the party into two factions.
Jibrin, who issued a terse statement on his sick bed in Kaduna Thursday, where he is recuperating from an ailment, said the judgment came at the right time for the PDP to put its house in order before the next round of general elections in the country.
The BOT chair said the victory of Makarfi at the court saved the party from extinction as many would have left if the party had been handed over to Sheriff to lead.
He said, “I would have resigned as PDP BoT chairman if Sheriff had won.”
Jibrin called on members of the party to work together towards achieving a common goal now that the crisis in the party was over.
