Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Uche Secondus, has taken over as acting National Chairman of the party following the resignation Wednesday of Adamu Mu’azu on health grounds.
National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Olisa Metuh, who confirmed this to journalists at the Wadata Plaza national secretariat of the party, commended the erstwhile chairman for his services to the PDP and love for the nation.
He said, “I can confirm that we have received the resignation of the National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu. I can confirm that the chairman, who had health challenges, stayed on for the primaries, for the campaigns and the elections and after consultations with his family, and in his personal interest, he had decided to resign.
“This party commends him for his services to the party and for his love for the nation. We wish him well. We will not forget him. In line with the constitution, the Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, has taken charge of the affairs of the party as acting national chairman of the party. The constitution does not recognise a vacuum”.
According to the PDP spokesman, Secondus would run affairs of the party pending when a replacement would be appointed from the North-East.
