Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is under pressure from top members in the Southwest to resign.

According to report, these top members have begun consultations and campaigns to convince other stakeholders in the party to remove Secondus as the party’s national chairman.

Their grievance is hinged on House of Representative’s crisis, constitutional breaches and failure of the National Working Committee (NWC) under his watch to get victory for the party in the 2019 presidential election.

The PDP chairman is billing to end his 4-year tenure in 2021, after which a national convention would be held for new leadership to emerge.

Daily Trust reports however that some PDP stalwarts are plotting his removal before then.

Daily Trust quoted a source as saying that some founding fathers of the party, former national officers, former governors, serving and former members of the National Assembly who are part of the plot are putting a committee in place to actualise their dream.

He said the aggrieved stalwarts were persuading a former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, to return to the PDP and take a shot at the national chairmanship as “compensation” for the Southwest.

However, while speaking on the matter, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, dismissed claims that Secondus was under pressure to vacate office.

He said, “The national chairman is not under any pressure to leave office, except the fact that we believe that democracy is gradually being killed by this government and we believe that as the main opposition party we have a responsibility to salvage democracy. “
