The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus in the House of Representatives has called for the immediate resignation of the embattled current PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus over the lingering crisis on the massive defection of party members at all levels.

The caucus’ position was contained in a communique issued at the end of an online meeting which was co-signed by its Leader and his Deputy Hon. Kingsley Chinda and Hon. Chukwuma Onyema.

After extensive deliberation on various aspects of concern being expressed by members of the party across the federation as well as the current charge of inept leadership against the PDP National Chairman, the lawmakers urged the PDP Chairman to consider making the necessary personal sacrifice worthy of a leader in the party’s current and future interest.

To this end, members of the Caucus formally enjoined the PDP Board of Trustees (BOT) and PDP Governors Forum to “ensure immediate and firm resolution of current challenges so as to enable a re-engineering, re-focusing process that would restore party members and millions of other Nigerians’ hope and confidence in the PDP as an alternative to the current dysfunctional, irresponsive and rudderless government of APC with its attendant suffering, miseries, political deceit, economic woes, insecurity and all-round disappointment foisted on millions of Nigerian families across the federation.”

They observed that: “Whereas members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and millions of Nigerians nationwide anticipate vigorous and well-coordinated issue-based national opposition; preparations towards a national convention as well as the 2023 general elections, much confusion, finger-pointing and needless noise around the party’s national headquarters have obfuscated the noble objectives and lofty ideals of the PDP and democratic opposition politics in Nigeria.”

The lawmakers further alleged that the “National Chairman seems much more contented with occupying the office and therefore preoccupied with holding onto his position rather than preparing for next elections; this explains for his inexplicably missing endless opportunities that ought to have been utilised for consolidating a viable opposition; skewing party congresses to favour personal future ambition and frustrating genuine party members across states which have resulted in the mass exit of party members at the National Assembly.”

According to them, the PDP under the leadership of Prince Secondus has “no clear road map, blueprint or policy programme for the PDP by the Chairman, thus the party is allowed to flow with the tide, only showing up with weak press releases once in a while without commensurate sustainable action.”

They further frowned at the “lax and bedroom managerial attitude of the Chairman who runs the party from his home and only surfaces in the party office for meetings, coupled with several promises without commensurate action has led to inept management of complaints, despondency amongst members and consequently an exodus of members of the party at all levels, including a member of the Board of Trustee of the party.

The Caucus also noted that “whilst these misfortunes befell the party and concerned party members are busy trying to stem the tide, the party Chairman has carried on as if all is well and does not appear to see the caldron awaiting the party if it continues on that trajectory.”

The lawmakers who acknowledged Prince Secondus’ past contribution notably to the party, however, decried the “cogent accusations currently being levelled against his leadership far transcend personal issues as there is an established consistent and persistent pattern of inadequate consultations, even with members of the PDP House Caucus, thereby giving rise to hitherto unspoken feelings of intra-party alienation in several quarters including in his NWC.

“Such has manifested into or encouraged or fueled the exit of many prominent and highly-experienced party members with many more at the brink of leaving if nothing is done fast.

“The Caucus’ is further concerned that a further three months under the ruler-ship of the chairman will do grave injustice to the party and put us in a precarious situation as every hour should matter now,” the communique read in part.
