Uche Secondus has broken his silence over the PDP crisis, makes new revelations about the person trying to hijack the party affairs.
News Online reports that the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has revealed that a strong chieftain of the party is trying to hijack the PDP from him.
Secondus who spoke on Wednesday further alleged that the person whom he refused to name, is working on denting his image.
The PDP chairman revealed that the person is pushing for the party to have an interim arrangement in the form of a caretaker committee so he could take over the party structures.
The alarm raised by Secondus was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Ike Abonyi, titled, ‘Who is after Secondus and why is somebody in love of caretaker?
The statement reads in part: “The media office of the National Chairman is privy to intelligence that the strong party chieftain bent on hijacking the party structure for destruction is still on the loose with the main agenda of denting the image of Prince Uche Secondus the National Chairman.
“Reports reaching this office show clearly that this character is deploying all devious means to try and diminish the person and character of the National Chairman with a view to having his way of ultimately hijacking the structure for his disproportionately large ambition.”
News Online earlier reported on Tuesday that the resignation of seven members of the PDP National Working Committee who explained they could no longer work with the national chairman, has plunged the party into a fresh crisis.
