The Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum has finally reacted and cleared the air that it didn’t call for the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus.
The forum’s Director-General, CID Maduabum, disclosed this in a statement titled, ‘PDP Governors Forum Denies Asking Secondus To Quit’.
This medium recalls that amidst the wrangling within the party, a Kebbi State High Court on Thursday reinstated Secondus who was suspended by a Rivers State High Court last week.
In the statement, the forum said, “The PDP Governors Forum hereby categorically denies the insinuation in some media, that it had asked Prince Uche Secondus to quit as National Chairman of PDP, in spite of the Kebbi State High Court Order reinstating him.
“The PDP Governors Forum at its emergency meeting on Thursday, 26th August, merely endorsed the NWC resolution adopting Elder Yemi Akinwonmi, the Deputy National Chairman, South as acting National Chairman of PDP, and the holding of the NEC meeting of PDP on Saturday, 28th August, 2021.
“For the avoidance of doubt, this warped interpretation of the statement of the Chairman of the PDP-GF, Rt. Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal CFR, after their emergency meeting on Thursday is clearly mischievous.
“At the time Tambuwal spoke on Thursday night, the Kebbi State High Cout Order had not been received by the Forum, and consequently was not discussed or commented upon.“This clarification has become necessary to set the facts straight.”
