OBASANJO SUMMONS SECONDUS TO OTTA OVER PDP CRISIS

Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo has summoned the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic party, Uche Secondus over the current crisis rocking the party.

OBJ and Secondus held a closed door meeting on Thursday in Abeokuta, Ogun state.

POLITICS NIGERIA gathered that Secondus arrived Obasanjo’s Penthouse residence, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, alongside his entourage around 12pm. As at the time of filing this report, the meeting was still ongoing.

It can be recalled that the PDP has been facing serious internal problems over the past few weeks with many speculating that it was a result of a power struggle between Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike and Ex-vice president, Atiku Abubakar.

Several party members including some members of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC have called for the resignation of Secondus. A protest was held for two days at the party’s national secretariat calling for the resignation of the river-born national chairman.

Leaders of the party including past governors, senators, ministers etc, convened last week to intervene in the crisis. It was agreed that Secondus will be allowed to complete his tenure as chairman and the party’s convention will hold in October
