The end seems to be near for the embattled Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus as the executive committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ward 5 in Ikuru, Andoni LGA of Rivers state, has suspended him from the party.
The ward chairman George Christopher, said Secondus was suspended at a meeting held at the party’s secretariat in Ikuru.
The chairman while Speaking on Tuesday, said 11 out of the 17 executive members approved the suspension of Secondus from the ward chapter of the party.
Secondus, is a member of ward 5 in Ikuru, Andoni LGA, was a former chairman of the party in Rivers.
“The ward executive of the Peoples Democratic Party in ward 5, Ikuru town, and the leaders met on the 31st of August, 2021 issues that affect the party,” he said.
“Suspension of Prince Uche Secondus was done by the ward executive after a duly constituted ward meeting called by the secretary on the instructions of the chairman, according to the constitution of our great party.”
After the announcement of the suspension was made,Ike Abonyi, Secondus spokesperson, said his principal has not been served notice on the development.
“The national chairman is not aware of that,” he said.
The embattled Secondus has been under increased pressure of late, with demands for his resignation coming from various quarters.
Only last week, a Rivers state high court granted an interim order restraining Secondus from parading himself as the national chairman of the PDP.
However another high court sitting in Kebbi ordered that Secondus retain his position as national chairman of the party.
However, last Friday, a high court in Cross River state barred him from resuming office as the national chairman of the PDP.
In compliance with the court order, the party’s national working committee (NWC) named Akinwonmi, the national deputy chairman (south), as the acting national chairman.
