PDP Crisis: You’re Dancing, Confidence Vote Won’t Save Ayu – Wike Mocks Secondus

It was on Saturday, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State derided Uche Secondus, the former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for celebrating the endorsement of Sen. Iyorcha Ayu as his replacement by the PDP‘s National Executive Committee.

No amount of confidence votes, according to Wike, would prevent Ayu from being removed from his or her job.

The governor made this announcement at a lavish celebration for around 90 PDP defectors from other political parties held at Port Harcourt’s Isaac Adaka Boro Park.

He claims that Secondus is dancing and seems to have forgotten that a sitting national chairman has before been removed from office following a vote of confidence.

I was observing and listening, Wike stated. There is supposedly only one person, Secondus. They claim he was dancing in celebration of NEC giving their candidate a vote of confidence. History escapes his memory.

“Ask him, the same NEC through Aliyu Babangida, who presented a motion for a vote of confidence supported by the same person, Ndudi Elumelu, awarded him a vote of confidence. What happened? He got up and left the building.

“We don’t fight and turn around. It’s none of my concern if you want to receive up to twenty votes of confidence. Making ensuring the proper thing is done is what I and my staff do.

“And whether it is done now or tomorrow, the right thing must be done. Therefore, no one should care about themselves. Dance at home if you’re dancing. Come and mobilize support for the candidate you believe will win.

Since Alhaji Atiku Abubakar became the PDP’s presidential contender for 2023, the party has been in trouble.

When Atiku chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to be his running partner in the upcoming election, the party descended into chaos.

Wike has expressed his displeasure with the PDP’s leadership over Atiku’s selection of a running partner.

Wike, the PDP’s second-place finisher in the presidential primary a few months ago, was neglected by Atiku, which caused the party to split.

After taking the appropriate action, Wike demanded Ayu’s resignation.

The governor remarked that neither the PDP’s presidential candidate nor its national chairman could be produced in the North.
