Written by crest887fm on August 11, 2021
Amidst increasing calls for the resignation of Prince Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, leaders of the party have fixed the end of October for the national elective convention.
Although the tenure of the incumbent National Working Committee, NWC, was due to elapse on December 6, stakeholders of the party made up of 13 governors, the Board of Trustees, and other organs of the party, brought the convention forward in what is seen as a move to placate anti-Secondus forces who have been pushing for his removal in the past few months.
Addressing newsmen at the end of the meeting which lasted for two and a half hours, Sokoto state governor and chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, said a National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting will hold next week, after which a convention planning committee will be constituted.
Governor Tambuwal also announced that Secondus will in his capacity as chairman of the party convene the NEC meeting.
