PDP leaders should meet with Prince Uche Secondus, the former National Chairman of the party, and persuade him to dismiss the lawsuit he brought against the party just prior to the party’ s National Convention.
It should be remembered that Secondus was recently dismissed from his position as National Chairman of the PDP by a group of party leaders. Governor Nyesom Wike of the state of Rivers was one of the PDP governors that played a pivotal role in the removal of Secondus from his position as the party’ s national chairman.
Secondus, on the other hand, had taken the Party to court to protest the manner in which he was dismissed as National Chairman.
All efforts by David Mark to persuade Secondus to settle the matter outside of court failed despite the fact that the PDP had established the Reconciliation Committee, which was led by the former Senate President, David Mark, to resolve the crisis between Governor Wike and Secondus and to persuade Secondus to withdraw the case against the Party from court.
If the Secondus Case against the Party is not handled out of court prior to the Party’ s National Convention, it may have an impact on the Party’ s win in the election. Because the Court may decide to reinstall Secondus as the Authentic National Chairman of the Party, this is necessary.
Could it be appropriate to remove the new Chairman of the Party who was elected following the National Convention of the Party to allow for Secondus to take over? It is necessary for the Party Leaders to meet with Secondus in order to persuade him to drop the case from court.
It should be remembered that Secondus just issued a press statement following the NEC Meeting in which he promised to stop anyone or any group from hijacking the Party.
In addition, he used the medium to remind the Party Leaders of the upcoming Legal Battle, which would take place before the Party. That is a sign that Secondus has not given up hope in the wake of his ouster from his position as National Chairman of the Democratic Party. As a result, PDP leaders should exhaust all available methods to persuade Secondus to drop the case from the Court before the Party’ s National Convention.
This is merely an opinion, and anyone with opposing views should express them constructively and without resorting to personal attacks on the writer.
