Uche Secondus may emerge as PDP National Chairman
Tue, 28 Nov 2017
Barely two weeks to the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), tension is mounting as to what the result of the elections would be and what the results portends for the future of the party. This is as the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party has fixed Thursday for a meeting to discuss issues being generated by the convention. While many of the aspirants are worried because of the failure of the national leadership of the party to release the list of those that would conduct the December 9 National Convention, there are strong indications that the odds favour Prince Uche Secondus, a candidate considered as the dark horse in the race, to clinch the chairmanship position. This is because many believe that the former acting National Chairman has deep experience in the internal workings of the party and that is his strongest selling point. Secondus, The Daily Times gathered, fit perfectly well into the mindset of a cross-section of PDP stakeholders that have vowed not to settle for anything less than experience as the most critical consideration for supporting any of the candidates jostling for the soul of the party. The former chairman of the party in Rivers State is also seen by many as a person that knows the party inside out. His role in the rebuilding process of the party could not be ignored, as he is acknowledged as one of the very few that saved the PDP’s ship from a total wreck. He is believed to be strong, bold and pushful and that with him on the driver’s seat, the party may return to power in 2019. To some members of the party organs, Prince Secondus remains the most qualified for the chairmanship position going by his antecedents before and after the crisis that culminated in the loss of the party in the 2015 general election. While the PDP’s Governors Forum has not made an open preference, it is believed that majority of the governors will back Secondus for the position.
