… PDP Plans To Retain Secondus As Natl. Chair
… To Cede Vice President To South East
Agitation to cede the 2023 presidential ticket of the PDP to the Igbo nation may be a mirage as plans to scuttle the said gentlemen agreement is on the increase following plans to retain Uche Secondus, as the national chairman of the party in the next PDP’s convention which takes place anytime this year.
The people of the South East who have been clamoring for the seat of the number one citizen have been given the hope that after Buhari’s regime, it would be their turn since other geo-political zones must have held the said seat.
In a bid to knock off the people of the southeast from taken the said seat which by equity is their turn, the leaders of the party, particularly those from the North were said to have concluded plans to retain Uche Secondus who hails from Rivers as the National Chairman and cede the position of the Vice president to the Igbo as a ploy to knock the Igbos out in the next presidential election.
However, the plot to allow the two positions in the South is to quench the agitation of Igbo people as well as to place them in a position that they would not have moral justification to still demand for the rights and seat for the presidency.
Information to Lead revealed that the PDP caucus, particularly those from the Northern part of Nigeria are projecting Atiku Abubakar for the party’s presidential ticket in the next election.
Recently the said Uche Secondus made a shocking revelation when he told the PDP members and Nigerians that Atiku Abubakar who filed the ticket of the PDP presidency in the 2019 election with Peter Obi as a running mate can still contest for the party’s primaries when the party in their last election had promised to cede the party’s ticket to the South East in the next election.
This statement by the PDP National chairman, did not go down well with the Igbo nation which warranted different sections and groups, waking up from slumber to press and agitate further the presidential ticket for the Igbos in the next election. Today, the apex social-cultural organization in Igbo land, the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo has on different occasions made it clear that if Igbo people do not get the presidency of Nigeria in 2023, that the entire Igbo nation would join the IPOB in the fight for the actualization of Biafra.
