PostSubject: We won’t resign, PDP NWC members vow   Fri 22 May 2015, 8:55 am

The acting National Chairman of the
Peoples Democratic Party, Uche
Secondus, on Thursday insisted that
he and other remaining members
of the party’s National Working
Committee would not resign.
Secondus said this after he led the
NWC members to a closed-door
meeting with President Goodluck
Jonathan.
The meeting was held inside the
Presidential Villa, Abuja barely 24
hours after Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu
and Chief Tony Anenih resigned as
the party’s national chairman and
the Board of Trustees chairman
respectively.
Secondus, who took over as the
national chairman of the PDP in
acting capacity, described the call
for the resignation of all the NWC
members the same way Mu’azu did
as unconstitutional.
He had shortly after taking over as
the acting national chairman on
Wednesday met behind closed-
doors with Jonathan at the
Presidential Villa, Abuja.
When asked by State House
correspondents to respond to call
for the resignation of all the NWC
members, the acting national
chairman said, “You know that (call
for the resignation of all NWC
members) 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 tenure. At
the end of our tenure, if we are re-
elected, fine; if not, fine. That is the
right thing to do.
“There is no reason for us to resign
because we have worked hard.”
Despite the coincidence in the
resignation of Mu’azu and Anenih,
Secondus insisted that none of
them was forced to resign.
“Sometimes, it happens that way.
Nobody forced them to go.”
Secondus stated that other
members of the NWC decided to
interact with the President who is
the party’s national leader on latest
developments in their fold and the
way forward.
He said with Mu’azu’s exit, the new
leadership would sit back and “re-
organise and re-invent” the party.
The new PDP boss assured party
members and other stakeholders
that the party remained intact with
no problem threatening its
continued existence.
Hours after Mu’azu and Anenih
resigned, a top PDP member told
The PUNCH that Secondus would
not remain in office for too long.
He had said, “All of them (the
members of the party’s NWC) are
guilty of the charges against
Mu’azu. We were calling for the
removal of all of them. But since we
could not get that, we changed our
strategy to get their leader out.
“So Secondus will only remain
there for some time; once we get a
new leader, he will watch over
them.
“Apart from that, we need to be a
strong opposition party and to do
that in the present circumstances
we have to get a credible person
from the North. We are going to
push for a Northern person who
will give us a presence in the
North.”
The PUNCH also gathered on
Thursday that some chieftains of
the party had mounted pressure on
other members of the NWC to
resign.
A highly placed member of the
party who spoke on condition of
anonymity because of the
sensitivity of the issue said, “There
is nothing more to be said, Chief
Fani-Kayode has said it all.
“The remaining members of the
NWC must leave for us to rebuild
our party. That is the only
condition. We cannot have traitors
among us and expect to correct the
mistakes of the past.”
Before going to the Presidential
Villa, Secondus presided over his
first meeting as acting chairman of
the party.
The meeting, which was held at
Wadata Plaza national
headquarters of the PDP in Abuja,
had in attendance most members
of the NWC. The National Publicity
Secretary, Olisa Metuh, was
however absent.
He was said to have travelled
abroad for an undisclosed reason. It
was also not clear why the Bayelsa
State Governor, Seriake Dickson,
was at Wadata Plaza, but soon after
he left, members of the NWC ended
their meeting and proceeded to
the Villa.
