The All Progressive Congress (APC) has tackled Uche Secondus, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stating that the opposition party is crumbling under his watch.
Yekini Nabena, APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, stated this in Abuja on Monday.
Nabena’s statement was, however, in reaction to the recent comment by Secondus faulting President, Muhammadu Buhari’s comments that his administration could have used security agencies to overrun states won by the opposition PDP in the 2019 elections but chose to support a democratic process.
The ruling party’s spokesperson called on the PDP National Chairman to focus on his party, which, according to Nabena, “has become shockingly rudderless under his watch”.
“Under Secondus, the PDP has never had it this bad with the opposition party’s stakeholders detached from the party activities as was witnessed with notable PDP leaders boycotting the Party’s 2019 presidential campaigns and the recent Bayelsa State Governorship bribe-for-ticket scandal that indicted Secondus,” said the APC spokesperson.
“Little wonder, the recent months have witnessed many PDP members resign their membership due to Secondus activities which have brought the PDP to its knees.
“The PDP under Secondus is in willful denial of the obvious that under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, free, fair and credible elections is the new normal. Voting power is fast returning to the people and the era of stolen and procured votes is fast-fading.”
Continuing, Nabena added, “Why will the PDP under Secondus not support efforts to ensure the independence of our state institutions such as the judiciary, INEC, and our security services and ultimately deepen our democracy and improve our electioneering system?”
