members of the party to note
that the position of National

Chairman was zoned to the
Southern region comprising of
three zones .Prince Secondus
has every legitimate and legal
rights to aspire for the office of
National Chairman.

records that since launching his
ambition,Prince Secondus has
been reaching out to delegates
across the 36 states ,seeking
their votes and presenting his
agenda for revival of the party
ahead of 2019.
“Throughout this period ,no
member of Board of Trustees
has openly endorsed him
as they have done for some
other candidates .No state
governor has openly endorsed
him so far even though some
aspirants claimed support of
some governors.Where then is
the plot to impose Secondus?

great blueprint to return the
PDP to power in 2019.
“The forthcoming
convention is our great
opportunity to complete
the redemption started
at the Port Harcourt mini

elect real committed
party members into the
upcoming National Working
Committee. In this clarion
call,we urge delegates to
support Prince Secondus
,the man of undiluted loyalty
,unflinching determination
for PDP revival and
unparralled qualification for
PDP leadership.
