The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, may be heading towards fighting the political battle of his life as he mobilizes his supporters to contain spirited efforts by some members of his party to oust him.
PDP leadership is reported to be currently sharply divided over his continued stay in office as the national chairman, with those against him condemning his handling of party affairs, the latest being its financial audit report for 2020 and placing former Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose over Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State because of the intimacy he shared with the former
A member of the party from the Southwest, claimed that many NWC members are dissatisfied with the way Secondus placed former Governor Fayose over and above Governor Seyi Makinde in the zone.
“That is not how we do things in PDP. But Fayose is Secondus’ friend.
“Sadly, this unnecessary meddlesomeness is killing the party in the Southwest.
“We have the only governor being disregarded by the national leadership of the party all the time; we have the majority of our national assembly members unhappy with the party’s handling of issues; those of us in the NWC from the zone too are concerned that things aren’t being done properly.
“And we say we are repositioning the party to take over the zone. How on earth are we going to achieve that?”
