The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has said that as part of its commitment towards ensuring the emergence of credible and selfless persons in authority that it has endorsed the aspiration of Prince Uche Secondus to be the national chairman of the party.

The state chairman of the party, Bro. Felix obuah at a press conference in Port-Harcourt on Wednesday thus urged all party delegates from the state and other states to vote for Secondus.

Obuah said:

“we of the Rivers State chapter of the PDP have resolved to ensure that only men and women who have the intellect, the acumen, the leadership qualities, tested technocrats and most importantly, honest and God-fearing people are elected as its new executive that will deliver and lead the party to victory come 2019 so that Nigerians will once again be happy in the midst of God-given abundant resources.

In this regard, we are pleased to inform you that the PDP has fairly and democratically zoned its national offices according to geo-political zones.

Here, in the whole of the Southern part, we are to produce the national chairman.

Unlike other zones, ours is easy because we are lucky to have as one of our own, a tested and seasoned personality, with the requisite experience not only to occupy the office of the National chairman but also capable of carrying out the onerous tasks with relative ease and satisfaction.

He is a pioneer member of the PDP, has served in different capacities including a onetime State chairman, National Organizing Secretary, Deputy National Chairman, Acting National chairman and a member of BOT among others.

He is no other than our very own, Prince Uche Secondus. He needs no introduction to you. For want of a better language, he is a bulldozer whose contributions to the victories recorded by the PDP in the State and at the national level can hardly be quantified.

We are solidly behind him and those in his camp because Nigerians need him, the PDP needs him and the nation’s democracy also needs him if it must endure and to redeem the dying Nigerian people.

We are therefore calling on our supporters and members in the State and across the country to see beyond their nose and rise above primordial sentiments, political maneuvering and vote for Prince Uche Secondus for PDP National Chairman come Saturday, December 9, 2017.
