He said the meeting advised all members to always maintain their honor and integrity as conscience of the party and to remain neutral and never sponsor or lead aspirants to visits and rallies as was done during last convention.

The BoT Chairman cautioned the PDP to manage the situation of new defectors to the party and also consider the role played by old members.
