- The PDP national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, has advised APC to fix Nigeria now
- Secondus also asked the leaders of the ruling party to fulfil the electioneering promises they made to Nigerians in 2019
- The PDP chieftain, however, warned that all members of the opposition are not for poaching
Prince Uche Secondus, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has cautioned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to focus on the task of governance.
Vanguard reports that Secondus said on Thursday, February 25, in Abuja, that the APC is interested in members of the PDP to join its fold ahead of 2023, rather than making life bearable for the ordinary citizens of the country.
Legit.ng gathered that he said this at a reconciliatory meeting with a former aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, in his Abuja home.
“We advise our brothers on the other side, especially some of these governors and leaders of APC that they should face the business of governance.
“They are aware that security has broken down, the economy has broken down. They should face that business for which they were elected.
“Our brother is firm and a man of his word. There is no amount of trick that will make him sway otherwise. He is firm with PDP and we are back to business while will prepare for 2023."
In his remarks, a former minister of special duties and inter-governmental affairs, Tanimu Turaki, told newsmen that Fani-Kayode would continue to remain in the PDP.
Other PDP stalwarts at the meeting were Col. Austin Akobundu (retd), national organizing secretary of the party; Hajia Mariya Waziri, national woman leader; Ibrahim Tsauri, national secretary of the party, amongst others.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that in what may have put a rest to his alleged plan to defect to the ruling APC, Fani-Kayode declared that he would continue to remain a member of the PDP.
It was reported that he made this known on Thursday, February 25, when the leadership of the party led by its chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, paid him a visit in Abuja.
Fani-Kayode also reiterated his commitment to the PDP and expressed no intention of leaving the party.
