Allegations of interference by the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Prince Uche Secondus in the forthcoming Governorship primaries in Bayelsa state, has been described as an attempt to blackmail the national chairman.
In a chat with DailyUpdate, the aide who asked to remain anonymous disclosed that Prince Secondus has grown taller above primordial sentiment such as being leveled against him by a group known as PDP South South Youth Vanguard.
The national chairman has proved himself to be a committed party leader who has contributed immensely to the building and sustainability of the PDP, the aide stated. “Secondus has an impeccable record of rebuilding the party from near ruins and led PDP to electoral victory in the 2019 general elections’, she said.
She noted with nostalgia, the unblemished record of the Secondus led national executive in conducting a free, fair, credible and generally acceptable Presidential election primary that produced Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the party’s candidate in Port Harcourt.
“The national chairman has proven himself to be above such irrational allegation put up by the so called PDP South South Youth Vanguard”. “It is a clear indication that the group is being sponsored by certain persons in Bayelsa PDP. They need to desist from such back stabbing and save the party from an embarrassing mess”.
“Prince Secondus openly told all aspirants last week that himself or any leader of the party will not interfere in processes that will lead to the emergence of PDP governorship candidates in both Bayelsa and Kogi states”. “So, this allegation is unjust, and an insult on the person of the national chairman”. “Sponsors of this dastardly move should stop henceforth and allow peace to reign in PDP. Every member in Bayelsa has the right to support any of the aspirants and all should be rest assured that the party leadership will remain impartial but conduct credible primaries that will be acceptable to all aspirants”, said the aide.
