Prince Uche Secondus, immediate past national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who was seen as the godfather of Andoni politics in Rivers State until his recent clash with the Rivers State Governor, Ezenwo Nyseom Wike, might have lost everything to his name in Andoni politics save for Tele Ikuru, his close relation, following the revolt yesterday by key political gladiators from the area, namely Rt. Hon. Ikuinyi Owaji-Ibani, speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly; Mr. Rufus Godwins, Head of Service; Dr. Davies Ikanya; Bar Erastus Awortu, Andoni council chairman among others for allegedly working against the interest of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State.
When the chieftains of PDP from Andoni Local Government Area paid a solidarity visit to the state chairman of the PDP, Ambassador Desmond Akawor, in Port Harcourt, on Monday, they declared their support for the leadership of the party in the state and dissociated themselves from the rebellion of their kinsman.
Responding, the chairman of PDP in Rivers State, Ambassador Desmond Akawor, explained how efforts were made to make Uche Secondus see reasons with the leadership of the party in the state but that he chose to be adamant, against the wishes and aspirations of the party leadership in Rivers state.
Meanwhile, Engr. Tele Ikuru, Prince Uche Secondus’ close relation and immediate past deputy governor of Rivers State, who many said was hoping to ride on the back of his blood relation to pick the governorship ticket of the PDP in 2023, was not with those who denounced the move of Uche Secondus against the interest of the party in the state.
