Rivers endorses Secondus as PDP national chairman

In the petition dated December 5, 2017, and signed by Onyebuchi Nwosu Esq, the petitioners accused Akubodu of misconduct, misrepresentation and misappropriation of the party funds while he was National Vice Chairman, Southeast zone of the PDP from 2012 to 2014.

"The governors did not take a decision on that and we have 25 states that are not controlled by the PDP governors; we believe more persons will come into our party and we are ready to receive them", he said.

The party said Buhari should specifically guarantee massive security for the success of the convention, explaining that it would be to Mr. President's credit if a peaceful and transparent convention of the leading opposition party was conducted ‎under his regime.

At the PDP secretariat yesterday, many PDP chieftains were seen going in and out of the secretariat with business picking up in the area.

According to him, "You have prayed for a successful convention of the PDP".

"It is not from the very top; they know that if we have a hitch-free convention, it will mark the end of APC in power".

The petitioners said that their demands became necessary to avoid a situation where the Operatives of the EFCC‎ would start chasing elected officers of the Party shortly after the Convention.

Meanwhile, the party has technically barred the states of Anambra and Osun from taking part in the convention because of internal squabbles within the party chapter of the two states.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, PDP's National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the ex-VP would be part of the convention and would deliver a speech but will not vote because he was not qualified based on the provisions of the party's constitution.

He said, "I have here the chairman of the caretaker committee, former chairman of Kaduna State, the chairman of convention planning committee, the governor of Delta State with the offcials for the convention".

"He also appealed to PDP leaders in the South-South to see Nigeria as a country that must be united and not divided along ethnic line". "So, it is not new and there is nothing wrong for a politician to move from one party to another".
