“I won’t say I’m happy with what is happening to the chairman — Secondus — because he was a bit naive.''

The politician alleged that a particular governor in the PDP was trying to hijack the party.

He said:

''So, when I was leaving, I told them — do two things. I was told that the working committee, especially Secondus, was going to be unduly removed to give one man or two the leverage of owning the PDP. I said that should not happen, and I told Secondus and I told all the working committee when they visited me in Abuja.
“And the second one was — cede presidency to the south-east and we will all be together. But they did not. I think it is the will of God to be where I am and I’m very happy.”
