PDP  Finally Dumps Uche  Secondus For Akinwonmi

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has finally dumped Prince Uche Secondus as the national chairman of the party shortly   after allegations by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State that his leadership lacked  the capacity to lead the party to victory in the forthcoming 2023 elections.

At a meeting of Governors elected on the PDP platform on Thursday at Abuja, it was resolved to replace  the Andoni in Rivers State – born politician with  Yemi Akinwonmi, the Deputy National Chairman (South),  as the  National Chairman of the PDP.

It would be recalled that Akinwonmi had stepped in on Tuesday as the Acting Chairman of the party, following an order from a High Court sitting in Degema, Rivers State,  stopping Uche Secondus from parading himself as the PDP National Chairman of the PDP..

The  presiding Judge, Okogbule Gbasam, ruled as follows: “That an order of interim injunction is granted restraining the first defendant from parading himself as a member of the second defendant or National Chairman of the defendant or performing the functions of National Chairman of the second defendant or any committee of the second defendants at ward, local government or state level or calling for any ward, local government or state congress of the second defendant or setting up committees for such congresses or participating in any activity of the second defendant whatsoever, whilst on suspension as a member of the second defendant pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.”

It would be recalled that  the party’National Convention has been scheduled  for October, two months before its earlier scheduled date of December, when the tenure of Secondus and the entire NWC should have ended.
