There is anxiety in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, following former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar’s loss at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, on Wednesday.
The development, it was gathered, has made some members of the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the PDP, to travel to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, UAE, to engage in ‘‘strategic consultation’’ with Atiku.
The meeting, it was learnt, was necessitated as a result of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal that upheld the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The PDP has rejected the Tribunal’s judgment, and has signified its intention to approach the Supreme Court.
Atiku is said to have been residing in the Dubai for some time now.
The Chairman, PDP BoT, Senator Walid Jibrin, confirmed the trip.
Walid said: “Yes. The PDP BoT members have travelled to Dubai, to see our Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as part of our strategic consultation. The consultation is going to be nation-wide. He is the first person we will meet for the consultation.”
It could not be confirmed how many members of the PDP BoT were on the trip. It was however, confirmed that Walid and the Secretary of the Board, Senator Adolphus Wabara, made the trip.
