Why I Won’t Withdraw My Case In Court -Secondus On PDP Suspension

Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has said he is not considering withdrawing the case challenging his removal by the party.

Secondus had been suspended by the party following an order by Justice O. Gbasam of a Rivers State High Court.

However, on Monday, through his Media Adviser, Mr Ike Abonyi, Secondus said his challenge in court is to save the party from manipulations.

The statement read, “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.
