The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has said he will not resign from his position amid calls for his resignation by some party members .
A caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party at the House of Representatives had asked Secondus, to “honourably” resign from his position over poor leadership of the party.
In a short statement signed by his spokesperson, Ike Abonyi, the PDP Chairman said nothing, so far, warrants his resignation as National Chairman.
He said “those tiny minority calling for his resignation should come clean and tell party members across the country his offense why he should resign,” the statement added.
“He said he will remain focussed and committed to the ideals of the party which he swore to protect and defend upon his election to lead this great party 44 months ago.”
According to the PDP House caucus, who met virtually on Saturday, Secondus was more “preoccupied with holding onto his position rather than preparing for next elections.”
They accused him of having “no clear road map, blue print or policy programme for the PDP.”
Secondus was also charged with possessing a “lax and bedroom managerial attitude” which 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.”
According to the PDP lawmakers, Secondus should “consider making the necessary personal sacrifice worthy of a leader in the party’s current and future interest with a firm assurance of honourable regard and appreciation by the party leadership now and in years to come, by honourably resigning his position as party chairman immediately, to allow the party an early start.”
