- APC has cautioned PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus, over his recent comments on Osun election
- The ruling party said that Secondus' conduct and utterances would bring his person into disrepute
- It, however, said that the chairman of a political party is expected to exhibit the highest sense of patriotism, decency, and decorum in public conduct and discourse
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, against conduct and utterances capable of bringing his person into disrepute.
Legit.ng reports that the party gave the advice in a statement signed by its acting national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, on Tuesday, September 25.
According to the APC, the chairman of a political party is expected to exhibit the highest sense of patriotism, decency, and decorum in public conduct and discourse.
The APC statement said, “Regrettably, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, has not lived up to these basic expectations.
“Weeks ago, the PDP national chairman took the internal matters of the country’s politics to the international scene by writing letters to various international organizations.
“Again, soon after the Independent National Electoral Commission declared the Osun state governorship election inconclusive, Prince Secondus without basis accused the electoral body of conspiring with the All Progressives Congress to declare the election inconclusive.”
The APC said it would as a rule, ignore irresponsible and baseless utterances and actions as exhibited by the PDP national chairman, but as "we prepare for the forthcoming 2019 general elections, it was necessary to give a word of caution on expected behavior required of all political sides.
The statement further read: “Prince Secondus is respectfully advised to temper his political language and conduct.
“His unfounded allegation on the inconclusive Osun state governorship election is not expected from such highly-placed party official.
“Accusing the APC of conspiring with INEC, without proof, is taking mudslinging too far.
“We advise Prince Secondus not to descend to the level unexpected of his office, less he enters the boxing ring with its attendant mud and dirt. His action will only bring him personal attacks, ridicule. A word is enough for the wise.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and all security agents must do everything to stop Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from buying votes on Thursday, September 27, in Osun election rerun.
