A member of the House of Representatives, Shawulu Kwewum, has written an open letter to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, to condemn the mass defections from the opposition party to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Kwewum said the PDP is now worse under Secondus’ leadership, warning that the party’s outing is billed to be disastrous at the 2023 general elections.
In the letter dated July 6, 2021, and titled, ‘In the Interest of Our Party, Democracy and the People of Nigeria: Time To Do The Needful,’ a copy of which was obtained on Wednesday, the lawmaker, who is representing Donga/Ussa/Takum/Special Area Federal Constituency in Taraba State, criticised the Secondus-led National Working Committee of the PDP.
The lawmaker noted that 2023 elections are just two years away, adding that with a few off-cycle governorship elections in a few states getting underway in a few months, the party needs time to reorganise, reconcile feuding members and prepare to campaign with well-prepared and articulated programmes to rescue Nigeria from “the present morass.”
The lawmaker stated that some members would be too discouraged to fight the unconstitutional acts and brazen illegalities being perpetrated by the ruling party as the reign of terror and insecurity envelope the country, while vast swathes of land are being taken over by bandits and ISWAP Boko Haram, who are already setting up forms of governance in some part of the country.
