The Acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, insists that members of the National Working Committee (NWC), would not resign.
In spite of calls for the members of the NWC to step down, Secondus said there’s no reason for any of the remaining members to resign.
He stated them the former Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu’azu and BoT Chairman, Chief Tony Anenih, resigned voluntarily.
Secondus said this while speaking with State House correspondents after a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“You know that is not right, it is unconstitutional, because the chairman did that voluntarily, and the BoT Chairman also did that voluntarily. Some of the others have tenures, at the end of our tenure if we are re-elected, fine, if not that is the right thing to do. There is no reason for us to resign because we have worked hard.”
Speaking on the resignation of Mu’azu and Anenih, he said: “Sometimes it happens that way. Nobody forced them to go.”
On what is next for the PDP, Secondus said: “Sitting back to reorganize and then re-invent our party, and to assure our teeming supporters and members that the party is intact without any problem.”
