The members of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today announced the removal of its Acting Chairman, Mohammed Haliru Bello.

Mr. Bello is one of the most prominent members of the PDP alleged to have shared money from the $2.1 billion arms scandal known as Dasukigate, for its association with the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki.

It is alleged that Mr. Bello collected N300 million from Mr. Dasuki during the election period in 2015.

Secretary of the PDP BOT, Senator Walid Jibril, announced the removal of Mr. Bello during a meeting with journalists in Abuja on Wednesday.

Mr. Jibril, who will also act as Chairman in addition to his responsibilities as Party Secretary, argued that Mr. Bello’s removal was because his tenure as Chairman has expired.

He said Mr. Bello was elected to the position of PDP BOT Chairman for only three months and that he had overstayed the period given to him.

"The BOT unanimously appointed Mr. Jibril as the Acting Chairman while still remaining as the substantive BOT secretary," Jibril said.
