The National Working Committee, NWC, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has announced the resignation of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the party, Tony Anenih.
The party in a statement by its national secretary, Wale Oladipo, also said “consequent upon the resignation, the Secretary of the Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin holds forth pending the election of a new BoT Chairman”.
The party said Mr. Anenih resigned “on personal grounds”.
The NWC noted the outstanding contributions of Mr. Anenih in the party over the years especially in his capacity as the Board of Trustees Chairman.
“As one of the founding fathers of the PDP, the NWC appreciates Chief Anenih’s guiding role in the party in the last 16 years and wish him well in his future endeavours,” the party said late Wednesday.
The PDP has been hit by a wave of crisis since losing the recent national elections.
Its national chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, resigned earlier on Wednesday.
The party had said it will clarify on Thursday whether Mr. Anenih was also resigning as speculated.
