PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus: APC claims his party is crumbling

The All Progressives Congress has called on Prince Uche Secondus, the chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, to focus more on his party, as it has become shockingly rudderless under his watch.

“Under Secondus, the PDP has never had it this bad with the opposition Party’s stakeholders detached from the party activities as was witnessed with notable PDP leaders boycotting the Party’s 2019 presidential campaigns and the recent Bayelsa State Governorship bribe-for-ticket scandal that indicted Secondus”, the APC said in a statement today.

The APC was reacting to a statement by Secondus accusing the APC of militarising elections.

On the contrary, the APC claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been supporting free, fair elections, particularly the 2019 elections as opposed to previous PDP militarized elections.

“The PDP under Secondus is in wilful denial of the obvious that under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, free, fair and credible elections are the new normal.

“Voting power is fast returning to the people and the era of stolen and procured votes is fast-fading”, APC said in a statement by deputy national publicity secretary Yekini Nabena.

“We reiterate that President Buhari’s declaration that the APC could have used the military and other security services to overrun opposition states in the 2019 general election.

“That it chose free, fair elections is a solid pointer and demonstrates our proven democratic and progressive credentials.

“Why will the PDP under Secondus not support efforts to ensure the independence of our state institutions such as the Judiciary, INEC and our security services and ultimately deepen our democracy and improve our electioneering system?

“We call on progressive partisans, particularly in the PDP not to sink with the opposition party which has become clearly disillusioned under Secondus.

“The Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CENCPC) has created a healthy and progressive political environment in the APC”, Nabena said.

“He is entrenching internal democracy which is geared towards electing into public offices patriotic countrymen who will put the people first and contribute to achieving the Nigeria we all desire and deserve.

Nabena said Governor Mai Mala Buni is busy building the APC which defends the fact that power belongs to the people and that during elections, votes must count.
