PDP Federal Lawmaker Announces That National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, And All Members Of His ‘Failed’ National Working Committee Must Resign Or Be Sacked, If PDP Plans To Win Any Election In 2023

A Member of the House of Representatives from Taraba State, Hon. Rimamnde Kwewum, representing Donga/Takum/Yangtu Federal Constituency, has called for an immediate change in the Leadership of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, if it plans to win the 2023 Presidential election or any other election for that matter, Page 36 learnt.

He made this known when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Abuja, on Monday.

His exact words: “It is imperative for PDP to be competitive in the next election. There has to be a change now, not later, in the Leadership of the party.

“Normally, when a party Leadership leads a party to defeat, it resigns to make way for people with new ideas to take over. That had been the standard around the world.”

Hon. Kwewum also spoke on the claims that the PDP is faced with internal crisis.

He said: “I do not think there is any crisis in the PDP. What we have now is that some members, such as the Governor of Rivers, and some people at the National Assembly, and a greater majority of members of the party, think that the National Chairman has done enough, even though his tenure will not elapse until November.

“But we think it is expedient for him to leave the scene for some other people to try, so that we can have time to reorganise the party, do a genuine reconciliation of party members.

“As you know, the party has some challenges in some States, where there are cases in court. We have some State Congresses that have not been concluded.

“We think that it will be good to have somebody that is not part of the crisis to manage the process of reconciliation and the process of reorganising the party, to be able to fight effectively during the 2023 general elections.

“Some people may feel offended that such a call is coming, but I am of the view that this call should have come even before now.

“But it is clearly observable that there are frictions, there are some challenges and it will be better for the party for a new leadership to resolve. Not that there is any crisis. The party is not in factions as far as I know.

“You know that when PDP had a crisis, we had two parallel Chairmen, Caretaker Committees until the court resolved. We do not have that situation today, so there really is not any crisis.”
