PDP crisis: I’ll speak against wrongs – Wike on disagreement with Secondus


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has dismissed claims of having personal disagreement with Uche Secondus, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Wike explained that he only speaks against the bad leadership in the party.

Featuring on African Independent Television, AIT, the Governor said that he would not be silent when things are going wrong, despite supporting Secondus’s candidacy.

“Everybody believed that whatever the national chairman was doing was dictated by Wike and must have the backing of Wike.

“I believe when you support somebody, support him to succeed. But when things are also going wrong, if you don’t speak out, people will believe you are part of it. Therefore, I owe it as a duty to say things are not going right,” he said.

Lately, Secondus had been struggling to retain his position as PDP National Chairman.

Some members of the party had called for his resignation over his alleged failure.

Secondus, however, vowed never to resign.

Amid the call, the PDP National Chairman had alleged that a strong chieftain of the party was plotting to hijack the former ruling party from him.
