The embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has been suspended by Ward 5 of the party in Ikuru town, Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The ward said that Secondus was suspended because he disobeyed the party’s decision asking him to step down as its national chairman.
Speaking during the ward’s extraordinary meeting at the party’s Secretariat at Ikuru town, Andoni Local Government Area, the Chairman of the party in the ward, George Christopher said:
“The Ward executive of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ward 5, Ikuru town, and the leaders met on the 31st of August, 2021 issues that affect the party.
“Suspension of Prince Uche Secondus was done by the Ward executive after a duly constituted Ward meeting called by the Secretary on the instructions of the Chairman, according to the Constitution of our great party.”
According to Christopher, eleven executive members out of the 17 endorsed Secondus suspension from the party.
He said that the embatled PDP chairman failed to attract any development to the area despite his high political profile.
The former chairman of Andoni LGA and chairman, Disciplinary Committee in the Ward, Benson Alpheous, also speaking at the meeting said, “Until further notice, our brother, Prince Uche Secondus remains suspended. I want to thank you for coming and again, reaffirm the suspension of Uche Secondus.
“For now, until you hear from us again, Prince Uche Secondus remains suspended,” he added.
