All serving governors elected on the platform of the party are members just as numerous members of the party’s BoT, members of the National Assembly led by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, some former governors, former ministers and other party stakeholders.
According to the national organising secretary of the PDP, Colonel Austin Akobundu, who signed the statement, the committee will be inaugurated on Monday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
