The National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has rejected calls for his resignation.
This was contained in a terse statement issued on Monday by his Special Assistant on Media, Ike Abonyi.
“The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has said that he will not resign his position.
Secondus said that nothing so far warrants his resignation from the position, adding that the “tiny minority” calling for his resignation should come clean and tell party members across the country his offense and why he should resign.
“He said he will remain focussed and committed to the ideals of the party which he swore to protect and defend upon his election to lead this great party 44 months ago,” the statement added.
There is a leadership crisis rocking the opposition party as political bigwigs in the party jostle for shares of its structure ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Seven members of the party’s National Executive Council has last week resigned from office.
The seven national officers of the party who resigned include Deputy National Financial Secretary; Deputy Legal Adviser; Deputy National Auditor; the Deputy National Publicity Secretary; Deputy Women Leader and Deputy Organising Secretary.
