The embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, on Wednesday, urged stakeholders to respect the party’s constitution in their quest to resolve its current challenges.
Secondus made this call in a statement titled “Who is after Secondus and Why is somebody in love of Caretaker?,” issued by his media office in Abuja.
He alleged that some individuals in the PDP are pushing for a caretaker committee to run the affairs of the party.
The chairman said he was privy to an intelligence report that a strong party chieftain who is bent on hijacking the party’s structure was behind the whole crisis.
Secondus was reacting to the increasing demand for his resignation by party members across the country.
Although the PDP chairman did not mention the name of the “strong” chieftain trying to hijack the party structure, many believe he was referring to the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, with whom he has had a running battle over control of the party machinery in the last few years
