The party's Board of Trustees (BoT) gave the advise in a statement issued after the BoT meeting in Abuja on Monday, August 29.

National Chairman of the board, Sen. Walid Jubrin, who read the statement, also advised the caretaker committee to constitute a new convention planning committee.

"To ensure a credible, transparent, free and fair convention, a new Convention Planning Committee should be constituted by the National Caretaker Committee and approved by National Executive Committee (NEC)," he said.

Walid added that the BoT would facilitate the raising of adequate funds for the party’s activities, including the convention.

The BoT which passed a vote of confidence on the caretaker committee, charged it to, as soon as possible, convene a meeting of the NEC of the party.

According to him, the NEC’s meeting should be convened to accordingly, approve proposals for moving the party forward.

He had urged the BoT’s reconciliation committee headed by Prof. Jerry Gana, to continue with all its reconciliation efforts.

The factional leader of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff, had, as part of his conditions for peace demanded the removal of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as chairman of convention planning committee and asked for the convention to be held in Abuja to ascertain a free and fair process.
