Secondus received defectors in Buhari’s home state, says PDP will oust APC


National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has urged Nigerians to help the party vote out the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.

Secondus told a mammoth crowd of PDP members and supporters in Katsina state on Saturday that Nigerians can longer endure the suffering brought about by the APC administration.

According to a statement signed by the Spokesman Ike Abonyi, Secondus told the crowd who were shouting “A kori Yinwa (let’s chase out hunger) that they should be ready to vote out APC and keep hunger out of their lives.

Secondus said that Nigeria unity is seriously under threat because of APC style that has made Nigerians enemy to themselves.

He told the rally organized by the North West zone of the party to formally welcome decamping members, that the APC has nothing to offer Nigerians.

The thousands of defectors were led by a former Senator and gubernatorial aspirant Senator Mohammed Lado.

“In katsina state APC has nothing to show outside what late Umaru Yar Adua and Ibrahim Shema did for you” he told the crowd.

“PDP is the only party that has the interest of the people at heart, it’s the only party that will guarantee national unity”, he said.

Four PDP state governors, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, Darius Ishaku of Taraba, Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom and Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe were among top PDP leaders that graced the occasion.

All members of the National Working Committee NWC of the PDP, the BOT Chairman Senator Walid Jibrin, former Senate President Adolphus Wabara and other members of the National Executives Committee NEC attended the rally.
