BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Despite having some aspirants in the South West zone of the country, a pan socio-cultural group, the Oodua PDP Alliance, has declared its support for a former lawmaker Uche Secondus, for the position of PDP National Chairmanship seat.
The group in a statement issued by Hakeem Ogunsola, advised aspirants from its geo political zone to contest for another position because it was not the base of the PDP.
Ogunsola who is one of the PDP’s leaders in Osun State, said it would back Secondus, who served as the chairman of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) between 2015 and 2016.
The statement stated further: “We want to note that rebuilding the PDP and winning power back in 2019 demand a chairman with solid home base, deep experience and capacity to face the power of incumbency, we need Secondus to lead these electoral and political battles to rescue Nigeria and change the fake change”.
The organization informed that it had commenced mobilisation for Secondus’ emergence as the PDP National Chairman, urging the South-West aspirants to jettison their ambition and bargain for better positions in government.
Meanwhile, a prominent aspirant from the South West and former National Deputy Chairman (SW) Chief Olabode George has insisted that he has the vast experience to contest for the position.
Chief George while in Kaduna, in continuation of his nationwide campaign, indicated that he was contesting so as to correct the immunity being experienced by the party in the pas.
He warned: “Anybody who intentionally disobeys the party’s constitution should be shown the yellow card. We have to be committed and loyal to the party’s constitution”.
