On Wednesday, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike explained why stakeholders in the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had to guarantee that Uche Secondus, the party’s immediate former national chairman, was removed from office.
Wike addressed at the inauguration of the Oyigbo-Okoloma Road in Rivers State’s Oyigbo Local Government Area.
Concerned stakeholders, he claims, fought for Secondus’ removal because they sought to reposition the party to win the presidency in 2023.
He stated that the party now has strong leadership to save Nigeria from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Some of us rose and said we will not wait. It doesn’t matter if the person is anybody from Rivers State or not, what’s important for us is for the PDP to have good leadership to fight for the change of leadership in this country come 2023,” he said.
As a result, he asked the party’s new chairman, who opened the road, to bring constructive change to the party and bring it back to power.
The governor announced that the people of the state had no other choice but to support the PDP, and that they would not let it collapse.
