The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has officially announced the appointment of a former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara, as the substantive chairman of the party's Board of Trustees (BoT).

In a strategic move to strengthen the party's leadership, a former governor of Kaduna state, Ahmed Makarfi was also appointed Secretary of the BoT, replacing the former Minister of Special Duties, Kabir Turaki.

The appointments were announced at the conclusion of the 76th meeting of the BoT, which held on Tuesday at Wadata Plaza, Abuja.

These changes come at a critical time for the PDP as it seeks to strengthen its administrative and strategic core ahead of future electoral challenges.

Adolphus Wabara's extensive political experience and previous term as President of the Senate are expected to provide valuable leadership and guidance to the BoT. Likewise, Ahmed Makarfi's track record as Governor of Kaduna State and his contributions to the party in various capacities are anticipated to bring renewed vigor and perspective to the operations of the BoT.

Naija News had previously reported that meeting it was presided over by Wabara while former governors Ahmed Makarfi (Kaduna State), Olagunsoye Oynlola (Osun State) and former Minister of Special Duties, Kabiri turaki, were present.

Other party leaders present include former PDP National Vice Chairman, Shuaibu Oyedokun, and former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido.
