PDP Convention: Why Secondus Needs To Calm Down, Senator Abba Moro Speaks

  • Senator Abba Moro has called on Uche Seocndus to accept his suspension in good faith and "let the sleeping dog lie"
  • The senator said that the Peoples Democratic Party is focused on rescuing Nigeria from the leadership of the All Progressives Congress
  • According to Senator Moro, Nigerians are waiting for the PDP to charge, rescue her and commence with solving the several challenges facing the country

A former minister of interior and the current senator representing Benue south senatorial district has urged the suspended national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, to calm down.

Moro while speaking to Legit.ng at the peak of the PDP's national convention which took place in Abuja said it would be unfair to say that Secondus has no right to feel bad about his suspension as a national chairman.

He said in his opinion, he would advise Secondus to take his suspension and whatever might have happened in good faith.

The court to rely on the PDP's guiding principles, its constitution and the 1999 constitution

Moro said:

"The court is here for ordinary citizens to ventilate their grievances, whether it has a legal significance is another thing altogether."
"There is no doubt as national chairman he will feel aggrieved to have been asked to step aside but if I were him, I would take it in good faith and allow the sleeping dog to lie."

Moro further noted that the suspended chairman has been a member of the party from its inception and has since occupied various positions both at the state and the national level.

He said while it is good that Secodus sought legal redress over the matter, it is important for him to step aside and allow the party to get things right.

Moro added:

"Secondus has been a state chairman of the party, he has been an organizing member of the party, he has been a national deputy, an acting chairman and finally a national chairman of the party."
"So if at this point, it is the will of God that you should step aside, ordinarily I expect him to step aside but like I said, the court is there for ordinary citizens to ventilate their grievances."
"But I can assure you that at the end of the day, the decision of the party, the constitution of Nigeria will guide the decision if the court like it did earlier. And PDP will come out victorious."

A mandate to rescue Nigeria from several challenges

Speaking on the focus of the PDP national convention, Senator Moro said the course of the PDP's convention is a straight one, 'Rescue Nigeria'.

He also said that the PDP has come to the realisation that Nigeria has been bedevilled with a litany of challenges and believes that the time is right for the party to tackle these challenges.

He said:

"This is because the PDP has come to the realisation that the nation is bedevilled with a myriad of problems - the problem of poverty, the problem of insecurity, the problem of unemployment, infrastructural deficit."
"Now that the APC has gone to the government and has realised that they don't have what it takes to solve the problem, Nigerians are waiting for PDP to take charge and rescue Nigeria."

Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that a media mogul and publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, had made public what Atiku Abubakar told him hours after he joined the PDP.

Momodu said the former opposition party's presidential candidate for the 2019 elections said he heard that he (Momodu) has plans to run for the presidency.

He also said they would, however, meet in the field of the polls to slug it out.

Also, Eagle Square in Abuja on Saturday and Sunday, October 30 and 31, the venue of the PDP national convention was flooded with banners and posters of prospective aspirants for various positions across the country.

The banners and posters showed that some of these aspirants were either vying for various offices in their states or Nigeria's highest office, the presidency.

For instance, some of these banners showed that the Bauchi state governor, Bala Mohammed; a former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, Doyin Okupe; Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state; former Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Governor Nyesom Wike are all hoping to contest for presidency in 2023.

While a former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, might be hoping to vie for the seat of the governor of Kaduna state.
