PDP Chairman, Secondus pressured to resign for a northerner

The Peoples Democratic Party is engulfed in a crisis over the chairmanship of the opposition party.

Three months after Adamu Mu’azu, resigned as Chairman and Uche Secondus, succeeded him as acting national chairman, the North is now angling to get back the position, hence the crisis.

A former adviser of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, reportedly visited the Wadata House headquarters of the PDP in Abuja on Tuesday, to ask Secondus to immediately resign from his position.

Gulak, a former FCT minister declared his interest in taking over from Secondus, stating that a Northerner is the right occupant of the chairman of the party.

He told journalists that he had submitted a letter to the NWC, informing the members that another person from the North-East should replace Mu’azu.

Gulak said: “My visit was to bring in writing to the notice of the party my intention to replace the former National Chairman of the party, after his voluntary resignation”.

“As a member, and by virtue of the constitution, I know there’s a vacancy. So it needs to be filled and I’m here to fill it. We need vibrant, bold and courageous leadership in PDP.

“The resignation of the former chairman was done voluntarily. And maybe due to the disastrous outing of the party in the last elections, he decided to resign as a man who wants to take responsibility for his actions

“The position of the constitution is that when a principal officer of the party resigns, the replacement should come from the zone from which the former person had come.”
