Ahead of 2023 general election, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus may dump PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

This revelation was given by a chieftain of PDP and a former Commissioner, Prince Kassim Afegbua in a statement on Sunday.

Afegbua has called for the sack of PDP Chairman for his poor handling of party affairs, adding that three serving governors on PDP platform, two from the North East and one from the South East have also concluded plans to dump the party.

While reacting to the recent defections of Senator representing Delta North Senatorial District, Peter Nwaoboshi and Zamfara state governor, Bello Matawalle from the PDP to APC, Afegbua noted that power arrogance in Dwlta State has made the Senator to quit.

“If you add salt to the injuries already inflicted, the defection of the Zamfara state Governor, Bello Mutawallen to the APC brings double jeopardy to an already bad situation.

“The Uche Secondus leadership looks apparently helpless and dithering like a lost sheep in the desert.

“I have every cause to believe there is possibly a huge conspiracy between the Uche Secondus-led NWC and the Caretakers Committee of the APC, to keep quiet while the opposition is being plundered through defection.

“I won’t be surprised if by tomorrow Uche Secondus decides to defect to the APC for reasons that are obvious.
“As I write this, another PDP Governor from the South-East is also warming up to defect. Also, another PDP Governor from the North-East is warming up to defect if the right leadership is not put in place to halt this drift. Save PDP now before it is too late.

“The time to sack Uche Secondus leadership is now, now and now. Postponing the evil day will only deepen the crisis of confidence that is presently on full throttle across the structures of the party.”

CAPITAL POST recalled that Cross Rivers State governor, Prof. Ben Ayade and Ebonyi State, Engr. David Umahi though serving their last tenures have since defected to the APC.

Ayade reasoned that there was need for his State to be in the same party with government at the centre as well as President Muhammadu Buhari’s sterling leadership qualities, hence, his defection.

Also during his defection in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, Umahi, who is the Chairman of the South East Governors Forum, said that the state was now 99.9 per cent APC.

Umahi said, it’s a matter of time, other PDP members in the State would soon join him.
