The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has endorses Prince Uche Secondus as the new National Chairman of the party ahead of Saturday’s National Convention.
State Party Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah, announced the endorsement minutes ago during a press briefing in the state capital, Port Harcourt. He described Prince Secondus as the best among the candidates, saying that he has all it takes to return power to PDP at the centre in 2019.
Bro. Obuah said: “As you are aware, our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party, the largest of its kind in the whole of the African continent will again, be making history as it convenes in Abuja, the federal capital territory for its National Convention on Saturday, December 9, 2017.
“The journey to this point as you are all aware has been tortuous but interestingly, we were able to surmount all the challenges, winning our opponents and detractors roundly up to the apex court of the country, the Supreme Court.
“We’ll ever remain grateful for a strong, virile and fearless judiciary that despite all manner of political undercurrents that threatened to sway it from the path of justice not only insisted on the truth, but also saw to it that justice was done.
“This is a victory for our democracy and we will continue to salute its courage as well as the efforts of you gentlemen of the press that painstakingly followed and reported the struggle and legal proceedings to the very end.
“It’s all these efforts that facilitated this great National Convention due on Saturday during which our great party hopes to choose most democratically leaders that will pilot its affairs, tested and impeccable men and women from across the length and breadth of this nation that have the intellectual capacity, political dexterity and administrative ingenuity to redirect and lead our party to victory come 2019.
“The need for this is self explanatory. Our dear nation is currently in a state of social decadence, economic strangulation and political quagmire for the singular reason that those presently in charge of her affairs are a bunch of incompetent, visionless and self-seeking people who do not have what it takes to lead a great nation and a great people like Nigeria.
“Consequently, the PDP is poised and more prepared than it has ever been to take power back from the All Progressives Congress, APC, and redirect the country on the path of progress, development, economic recovery and social justice for all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, party affiliations, religion or creed, etc.
“To achieve this great feat, we of the Rivers State chapter of the PDP have resolved to ensure that only men and women who have the intellect, the acumen, the leadership qualities, tested technocrats and most importantly, honest and God-fearing people are elected as its new executive that will deliver and lead the party to victory come 2019 so that Nigerians will once again be happy in the midst of God-given abundant resources.
“In this regard, we are pleased to inform you that the PDP has fairly and democratically zoned its national offices according to geo-political zones.
“Here, in the whole of the Southern part, we are to produce the national chairman.
“Unlike other zones, ours is easy because we are lucky to have as one of our own, a tested and seasoned personality, with the requisite experience not only to occupy the office of the National chairman but also capable of carrying out the onerous tasks with relative ease and satisfaction.
“He is a pioneer member of the PDP, has served in different capacities including a onetime State chairman, National Organizing Secretary, Deputy National Chairman, Acting National chairman and a member of BOT among others.
“He is no other than our very own, Prince Uche Secondus. He needs no introduction to you. For want of a better language, he is a bulldozer whose contributions to the victories recorded by the PDP in the State and at the national level can hardly be quantified.
“We are solidly behind him and those in his camp because Nigerians need him, the PDP needs him and the nation’s democracy also needs him if it must endure and to redeem the dying Nigerian people.
“We are therefore calling on our supporters and members in the State and across the country to see beyond their nose and rise above primordial sentiments, political maneuvering and vote for Prince Uche Secondus for PDP National Chairman come Saturday, December 9, 2017.
“We believe in him, we trust in him, we are for him.
“The voice of the people is the voice of God.”
