PDP crisis: Secondus accused of working for APC


The Women caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State have accused embattled National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus of hobnobbing with the All Progressives Congress, APC.

PDP has been mired in crisis with Secondus’s office the sticking point. A Rivers High Court on the request of four members ordered his suspension as the party’s chairman with three persons including himself now laying claim to the seat.

The others are; Yemi Akinwonmi, the deputy national chairman (south) and his counterpart in the north, Suleiman Nazif.

Secondus is fraternizing with the All Progressives Congress, APC, according to a statement the President and Secretary of the PDP women caucus in Andoni council, Doris Owaji and Beauty Samuel respectively jointly signed.

The accusers cited alleged plot by Secondus to file a suit seeking to vacate the Rivers court’s order in Nasarawa, a state under APC led-government currently.

The statement reads in part: “We had expected Secondus, who had been suspended in his ward in Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, for anti-party activity to defend himself in the suit filed against him here in Rivers State. We have no doubt that Secondus’ decision to file a suit in Nasarawa State proves that he must have entered into a conspiracy with the APC to thwart PDP’s quest to win the 2023 general elections. We find it absurd that Secondus, who has been a major beneficiary of the PDP, could desire to destroy the same party that brought him to limelight if he fails to achieve his inordinate ambition to perpetuate himself in office as national chairman.”
