Meanwhile controversy is trailing a statement by chairman of the PDP Board of trustees, Senator Walid Jibril, himself an indigene of Nasarawa state on the first step towards resolving the crisis. Alhaji Jibril had in a statement urged that all court cases be withdrawn followed by lifting of suspensions to pave way for dialogue. While the state PDP Exco stuck to this, the aggrieved party members said he said otherwise in a newspaper report, that is, that the suspensions should be lifted before withdrawal of cases in court. When this correspondent sent him the text with request for permission to so quote him in my next report, he replied, “Don’t add anything for now until my next press release”. Both Ewuga and Elayo say that they .are still waiting to be contacted by the BOT chairman.
