Barring any last-minute miracle, Prince Uche Secondus was set to emerge as the winner in the contest for the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) last night.

The development left two other candidates for the post, Chief Raymond Dokpesi and Prof. Tunde Adeniran, protesting. Secondus was expected to emerge officially as the PDP National Chairman at the party’s national convention held at the Eagle Square, Abuja, after sorting and counting of votes. The two separately declared their rejection on the basis of the circulation of a Unity List among the delegates. 

They made their submissions just as delegates finished voting even before the votes were collated. Dokpesi told newsmen  that the process of voting had been rigged, following the distribution of a unity list containing names of candidates believed to have won elections into various national leadership positions in the party. 

He said complaints were lodged  with the chairman of the PDP Electoral Committee  Chairman Gabriel Suswan who confirmed that he had seen the list with some delegates but that he was overwhelmed. Similarly, Adeniran called for the cancellation of the entire exercise, saying Governors Nyesom Wike foisted the Unity List on delegates. “We reject the entire electoral process. The election has been grossly compromised to achieve a predetermined end. 

The illegal Unity List is prepared by Governors Wike and Ayodele Fayose to foist on the entire delegates” Mr. Taiwo Akeju, Director, Media and Publicity of the Adeniran Campaign said last night. Meanwhile, the assertion by officials of the PDP about  restoration of internal democracy ahead of the 2019 round of elections were interpreted to be derailing as the former ruling party lapsed into the old way of forging a consensus in the enthronement of its leadership. Even before the convention opened yesterday morning, a  Unity List of delegates, forged between the party’s 11 governors and power brokers, was circulated with Secondus, a  former  Acting National Chairman, prevailing as the consensus candidate for National Chairman.
