I’ve No Intention To Withdraw Case Challenging My Removal From Court, Says Secondus

Published

Secondus

Uche Secondus, former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday said he has no intention of withdrawing the case challenging his removal from court.

Recall that a Rivers State High Court had restrained Secondus from exercising the functions of the National Chairman of the PDP.

The judge, Justice O. Gbasam who gave the order, also approved the suspension of Secondus as a member of the party pending the hearing and determination of motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.

Secondus had also vowed to defend himself in court if summoned.

However, a statement by Secondus’s Media Adviser, Mr Ike Abonyi, on Monday, said that he was in court to seek for justice, as well as save the party from manipulations.

“The attention of the media office of Secondus has been drawn to an unsubstantiated report claiming that he is under pressure to withdraw his case against the party from court.

“The truth which the said news did not state is that Secondus is not in court against the party, but was dragged to court by persons bent on hijacking the soul of the party.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the media office wishes to restate that Secondus is really under pressure for justice and will seek it anywhere to save the party from destruction,” he said.

Abonyi said that the party leaders were aware of the situation and knew what to do to rectify the problem.

“Nothing short of justice will save PDP from the current situation.

“For avoidance of doubt, the justice Secondus is seeking is as enshrined in the party’s constitution which is supreme.

“The constitution states clearly how a national chairman and any national officer can be sanctioned even where there is a known breach, talk less of where there is none,” he said.

Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, on Friday said he is not desperate to be President.

Mr Obi made the comment while appearing on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

According to Mr Obi, he left the Peoples Democratic Party for the Labour Party because the former did no longer align with his political values.

“I’m not desperate to be President or anything,” he said. “I’m desperate to see Nigeria work. Especially for the youths of this country.

“I’ve moved to where I think the process might allow me.

“I would rather lose doing the right thing than win doing the wrong thing. My politics have been consistent in character and integrity.”

Presidential Primaries: APC Afraid PDP Will Pick Northerner As Candidate – Adeyanju

Published

on

Deji Adeyanju, an Abuja-based rights activist, has suggested why the All Progressives Congress, APC, is yet to conduct the screening of its presidential candidates 48 hours to the party’s primaries.

Adeyanju said APC is waiting for the outcome of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries.

He alleged that the APC is afraid that the PDP may pick a Northerner as its presidential candidate; hence the delay.

In a post on Facebook, Adeyanju wrote: “48hrs to APC primaries, no screening of candidates or any single direction because they are so afraid PDP may pick a Northern candidate.

“That’s why they are waiting and going round and round. They are just waiting for the outcome of PDP primaries then in hours they will act.”

APC convention for the presidential primary will be held as scheduled from Sunday, 29th to Monday, 30th of May, 2022.

The PDP presidential primary will be held at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on May 28 and 29.
