PDP Chair, Secondus Speaks On Suspension By His Ward In Rivers State

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, on Thursday said only the National Executive Committee of the party has the powers to discipline him or any member of the National Working Committee.

Secondus made this known in a statement by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, in Abuja, in his reaction to suspension by his ward executives in Rivers State.

He said that Article 59(3) of the PDP Constitution states clearly that only the NEC has such power to discipline NEC members of the party.

“The media office of Secondus ordinarily should not be responding to every ‘noise’ in the media being engineered by those who set out to distract and destroy the PDP, ” he said.

“But it is our responsibility to guide those who are easily persuaded by news in the media hence this response.

“Such action is a mere wish as Article 59(3) of the PDP constitution states clearly that only the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party can discipline the National Chairman or any other National officer of the party.”

Secondus urged members of the public and the media to be wary of agents who were out to distract the PDP from its focus of rescuing Nigeria.

The PDP Ward 5 in Ikuru town, Andoni in Rivers State had on Wednesday suspended Secondus from the party.

His suspension was announced by the PDP Ward Chairman, George Christopher, at the party’s extraordinary meeting in Ikuru town, saying 11 of the 17 executive members endorsed the suspension.

Christopher accused Secondus of not attracting development to the area in spite of his exalted political profile, adding that his inability to manage the affairs of the party was also a bad reputation to the area.

He said: “The Ward 5 executive of the PDP in Ikuru town on August 31 discussed issues affecting the party.
