.Says Mu’azu’s resignation voluntary
The acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, yesterday gave an insight into why he did not resign with the National Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu’azu.
He said he had no reason to resign as he was elected and as such, could only be voted out at the expiration of his tenure.
Secondus refuted insinuations that Mu’azu and the Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), Chief Tony Anenih, were forced to resign
“You know that is not right, it is unconstitutional, because the chairman did that voluntarily, and the BoT chairman also did that voluntarily.
“Some of the others have tenures, at the end of our tenure if we are re-elected, fine, if not that is the right thing to do.
“There is no reason for us to resign because we have worked hard,” he said
Secondus fielded questions from State House correspondents shortly after visiting President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa.
On the coincidence between the resignations of the national and BoT chairmen of the party at the same time, Secondus said “Sometimes it happens that way. Nobody forced them to go.”
On his mission to the villa and the way forward for the PDP, he said: “I just came here to interact with our leader, the president.
“We shall be sitting back to reorganise and then re-invent our party, and to assure our teeming supporters and members that the party is intact without any problem.”
