New PDP chairman, Secondus set to formally take over from Markarfi

Former Chairman of Daar Communications Plc Chief Raymond Dokpesi

Prince Uche Secondus bounced back to become the new national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in its much anticipated elective national convention which ended in Abuja on Sunday, with the new party boss immediately serving a warning to All Progressive Congress (APC) that it is a one-term government.

Dokpesi, who contested had rejected the results of the votes after Secondus was declared victor.

After allegations of induced votes and rejecting the results, Raymond Dokpesi has congratulated Uche Secondus, the victor of the PDP chairmanship election.

Senator Gamawa Babawo Garba beat former Minister of Women Affairs, Hajia Maryam Inna Ciroma and Senator Saidu Kumo to emerge new Deputy National Chairman (North) which earns him a place in the National Working Committee (NWC).

But in a statement on Sunday, Dokpesi said PDP must be the victor in the end.

"We, therefore, have a big task of retrieving this nation from APC over its clear lack of direction and confusion starting with the presidency". Every member of this party as from this moment consider himself/herself equal shareholder in our common destiny.

"We will live more united, stronger and ready to take over in 2019, PDP governors have done beautifully well and there is no alternative to the PDP", he said.

Chairman of the ruling party, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun in a statement on Tuesday congratulating Prince Uche Secondus on his election at the PDP's recent National Convention expressed hope that the newly-elected Chairman will use his experience garnered over the years to ensure that the PDP assumes its role as a responsible opposition party in the country.

Secondus had enjoyed the massive backing of PDP governors led by Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State.
