Following the shocking resignation of seven national officers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the national secretariat of the party is currently holding an emergency press conference.

The party chieftains in different letters addressed to the National Secretary of the party on Tuesday alleged being sidelined and unfairly treated by the National Chairman,  Prince Uche Secondus.

Those who resigned included Prince Diran Odeyemi, deputy national publicity secretary; Ahmed Bello, deputy national legal adviser; Umoru Hadizat, deputy national women leader; Divine Amina Arong, deputy national auditor; Hassan Yakubu, deputy national organizing secretary; and Irona Alphonsus, deputy national financial secretary resigned their positions.

One of the national officers who tendered his resignation told journalists that, “My brother, since our election in 2017, we (deputy national officers) have only met with our chairman, Prince Uche Secondus thrice. It is not as if he called us; on those three occasions, we sought audience with him.


“The most annoying part is that during Christmas and Sallah festivities, the NWC would visit our governors. They would collect money and other items but I can tell you that they don’t share anything with the deputies. To him, we are just a necessary evil to be tolerated but never to be catered for. We all have our constituencies and our followers but from the way we are being treated, it appears they see us as nothing but appendages forced on them by the party’s constitution”.

Meanwhile, the party Youth Leader, Hon. Udeh Okoye, who briefed journalists, Tuesday, after the NWC meeting confirmed the resignation of 7 party National Officer and called for the resignation of the party National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.

Okoye who described Secondus as ” incompetent and care only about how to enrich himself” disclosed that majority of the NWC members are ready to resign in few days, if Secondus failed to resign.
