PDP Rep caucus, demands Secondus’ resignation 

The People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) Caucus of the House of Representatives, has urged the National Chairman of its Party, Prince Uche Secondus, to make personal sacrifices and resign honourably to enable the Party to have an early start.

This was part of the resolution reached by the party’s Reps caucus, after an online meeting held on Saturday, August 7 in respect of the lingering crisis in the party.

The caucus, in a statement jointly issued on Sunday, by its chairman, Rep Kingsley Chinda and deputy, Rep Onyema Chukwuka, expressed concerns over the deteriorating state of affairs of the party under the leadership of Secondus.

It said it was “concerned that a further three months under the ruler ship of the Chairman will do grave injustice to the Party and put us in a precarious situation, as every hour should matter now.”

The Caucus also resolved to “asks the BoT and the Governors’ Forum of the PDP to ensure immediate and firm resolution of current challenges, so as to enable a re-engineering, re-focusing process that would restore party members and millions of other Nigerians’ hope and confidence in the PDP, as an alternative to the current dysfunctional, irresponsive and rudderless government of APC with its attendant suffering, miseries, political deceit, economic woes, insecurity and all-round disappointment foisted on millions of Nigerian families across the Federation.”

According to the caucus, members of the PDP and millions of Nigerians nationwide anticipates vigorous and well-coordinated issue-based national opposition as well as proper preparation towards a national convention and the 2023 general elections.

It noted that “much confusion, finger-pointing and needless noise around the party’s national headquarters have obfuscated the noble objectives and lofty ideals of the PDP and democratic opposition politics in Nigeria.”

The Caucus also said that the National Chairman “seems much more contented with occupying the office and therefore, preoccupied with holding onto his position rather than preparing for next elections; as this explains for his inexplicably missing endless opportunities that ought to have been utilized for consolidating a viable opposition; skewing party congresses to favour personal future ambition and frustrating genuine party members across states which have resulted in the mass exit of party members at the National Assembly.”

It expressed worries that “there is no clear road map, blueprint or policy programme for the PDP by the Chairman, thus the Party is allowed to flow with the tide, only showing up with weak press releases once in a while without commensurate sustainable action.

“He also notes too that the lax and bedroom managerial attitude of the Chairman who runs the Party from his home and only surfaces in the party office for meetings, coupled with several promises without commensurate action has led to inept management of complaints, despondency amongst members and consequently, an exodus of members of the Party at all levels, including a member of the Board of Trustee of the party”, the Caucus said.

The Caucus further noted, “That whilst these misfortunes befell the Party and concerned Party members are busy trying to stem the tide, the party Chairman has carried on as if all is well and does not appear to see the caldron awaiting the party if it continues on that trajectory.”
