I’ve Not Stepped Down As PDP Chairman -Secondus

Uche Secondus, the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said he has not stepped down from the position.

He said this in a statement issued by his media adviser, Ike Abonyi, where he explained his absence from the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting.

According to him, the absence was in obedience to the court order which barred him from parading himself as chairman of the party.

Secondus, however, pointed out that until the expiration of his tenure in December, he remains the PDP chairman.

The statement read: “Prince Secondus by his unavoidable absence at the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting on Saturday was merely obeying an interim order from Cross River state High Court.

“As a law abiding citizen who has been an adherent of rule of law as a basis for democracy, stayed away in respect for the courts.

“Prince Secondus’ four year mandate to lead the party given on December 10, 2017 ends by December, 2021.

“By this release, media office wishes to urge media houses and members of the public particularly beloved members of PDP to disregard any news suggesting that he has stepped down.”
