Erstwhile Senate President, David Mark may emerge as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Although consultations are still ongoing, it was learnt that party leaders are pencilling down on him considering his track record of service and commitment to the party both in and out of office.
A top-ranking member of the party leadership who craved anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media on the issue told a Punch reporter in Abuja, on Thursday that, “We are in the process of rebuilding our brand and sacrifices will have to be made by all of us for us to succeed.
“Discussions are also ongoing about reconstituting our Board of Trustees and some of us are considering someone like former Senate President, David Mark for that role.”
In the same vein, the party has commenced its search for a new National Chairman, as successor for Uche Secondus.
A Punch correspondent gathered, in Abuja, on Thursday, that governors elected on the platform of the PDP who held a series of meetings with various interest groups in the party on Wednesday and Thursday, agreed that the party should forge ahead with its plans to hold a national convention and elect new leaders.
A source privy to one of the meetings who spoke to our Correspondent on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution said, “The truth is, we are preparing for our national convention, the search for a new national chairman has commenced in earnest.
