The BOT members had served the party meritoriously for a period of four years.

The National Secretary of the Party and former Minister of Information, Mr Labaran Maku while reading the communiqué, said that new members would be nominated before the forthcoming National Convention, scheduled for May 31.

Mr Maku noted that other congresses would hold as follows; Ward Congresses - May 19, Local Government Congresses - May 21, while States and Zonal Congresses would take place on May 23.

He announced that the party would retain its earlier zoning formula for the distribution of national offices, while members who took the party to court without exhausting internal mechanisms were expelled.

It was observed that the NEC met last on Dec. 21, 2016.

Earlier in his remark, Gov. Willie Obiano, who spoke in his capacity as BOT Chairman before the dissolution noted that the party had remained the 3rd largest party in Nigeria. (MOI)
