PDP Chair: North Central Members Express Support For Secondus



By Chibuzo Ukaibe, Abuja

Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the North Central have expressed support for former deputy national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, to emerge national chairman at the December 9, national convention of the party.

Led by former governor of Plateau State and serving Senator, Jonah Jang, the zonal leaders who met with Secondus last week in Abuja described him as the right person PDP needs to defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Secondus is among the eight aspirants contending for the PDP chairmanship position.
Jang stated that PDP at this point in time needs an experience party man like Secondus, adding that the party can only win in 2019 when a tested person is elected next month as the Chairman.

The former governor said the North Central delegates appreciate his humility of seeing himself as a servant of the party.

He said “What this party needs now is not a chairman but the chairman who would take the party to victory, we have all seen how painful and hurting it is to lose election.”

Jang however said that the PDP position at Aso a Rock is still empty and members and their leaders should not keep God away in what they do or seek.

Speaking earlier, Secondus said “With election around the corner there is no time to learn, the party need an experienced person and I think I have it, having served the party at various levels meriterously.

“Let me assure you that as your National Chairman I would deliver votes and if I can’t deliver votes from my constituency I should resign.”

On the entourage of Prince Secondus to address the delegates included former governors, National Assembly members and other Chieftsins of the party across the six geo political zones.
