Secondus still PDP acting chairman – Party

PDP Headquarters

The National Working Committee, NWC, of the Peoples Democratic Party has assured all its members that there has not been any change in the leadership composition of the party at the national level.

A former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, had on Wednesday stormed the headquarters of the party to assume office as acting chairman based on the orders of an Abuja High Court.

However, the national legal adviser of the PDP, Victor Kwon, in a statement on Thursday said Uche Secondus remains the acting chairman of the party.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the statutory organs of the party, the NWC, National Caucus, BoT and NEC will be meeting next week to deliberate on some developments including the replacement, from the North East of Alhaji Adamu Muazu, who resigned as the National Chairman of the party.

“The replacement will be in strict adherence to the provisions of the constitution of our great party as specified in section 47(6). Until then, the status quo remains, which means the Deputy National Chairman Prince Uche Secondus, remains as the Acting National Chairman.

“Furthermore, it must be reiterated that all relevant stakeholders of our party, including the PDP Governor’s Forum, National Caucus and the Board of Trustees (BoT) as well as our leadership structures at all levels are united behind the current National Working Committee in the efforts to rebuild, reposition and strengthen our party for the challenges ahead.

“The leadership of our party has resolved to remain focused and not be distracted by the unpatriotic actions of the former Political Adviser to the former President because we are privy to his agenda of being an agent of destabilization in the party.

“While urging all members, especially those with various aspirations to dedicate to actions that unite rather than divide our ranks, the NWC wishes to assure of its unflinching commitment to the wider interest of the party, especially at this challenging time,” the statement said.

    As long as the next national chairman of the PDP is not openly pro-Biafra, then the people of Niger Delta must find a replacement so that PDP will not continue as a pro-islamist northerner-controlled party in the zoo.

    This is where you get to know that PDP is a confused and total failure party, with every member trying to become the next chairman of the party not literally because they want to shape the party but to eat and destroy more. When you see pdp, ru for your life

    Not oblivious of the preexisting schism, Secondus on assuming as acting Chairman, promise to block the gaping holes and cement the crack on the wall of the party, I have helplessly watched the dwindling fortunes of the party, influence of the gladiators within the party appears to be feasting on the crisis confronting it. The most worrisome and urgent challenges at this particular time is stemming the cases of division which is given her a bad image, the APC is taking credit for the division from the rival within her block, I think Secondus should bow out for a new Chairman.
