Prince Uche Secodus says he is still the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He also said that the mandate given to him at the party’s National Convention in Abuja on December 9, 2017 remains intact until his four-year tenure expires in December this year.
He made the clarifications following his absence at the party’s 92nd National Executive Committee meeting held at its national secretariat in Abuja on Saturday amid speculations that he had been removed from office.
Secondus, in a statement made available to newsmen, said his absence at the meeting was due to his decision to obey an interim order from Cross River State High Court.
Earlier on Saturday morning, Secondus had sent a memo to his deputy, Yemi Akinwonmi, directing him to preside over the NEC meeting.
Secondus’ directive was believed to have been as a result of a court order from a high court in Calabar, which barred him from returning to office as the national chairman of the PDP.
The order came a few hours before the commencement of the NEC meeting which Secondus was meant to preside over.
