This was announced by BoT Chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, during a meeting with workers at the PDP National Headquarters in Abuja, Punch reports.

“You are aware that this place was sealed by the Nigeria Police, the reason was to keep the secretariat very safe. We in the BoT in line with the constitution of our party are going to be in charge of the assets and the liabilities of the PDP generally,” Jibrin said.

“It is in that respect that the Inspector-General of Police, having considered the importance of our constitution and having considered the importance of the members of staff of the PDP headquarters here, that this place be opened and not only be opened, but is entrusted into the hands of the BoT.

“Today, the BoT remains the only legal body now in the whole set up and that is why we are here to play our role. We are here to perform our duty according to the PDP constitution, hoping that our problems will soon be resolved.”

“We have gone very far to resolve this matter. We are making contacts and consultations and we are not here to blame anybody, but to resolve the problem. The PDP will never die, we are only on sabbatical and once the sabbatical is over, we are going to take over our leadership, we are going back in 2019," he added.

The PDP has been involved in an internal crisis since the removal of its chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff on May 21.
