The problems of the embattled National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, worsened on Wednesday with his suspension members of the party in his Ward 5 Andoni local government area of Rivers State
Chairman of the PDP in Ward 5, Christopher George, announced the suspension during an extra ordinary meeting of the Ward 5 PDP members on Tuesday in Ikuru town in Andoni local government area of Rivers State.
He said the PDP national Chairman Uche Secondus was suspended for causing disaffection in the party
Also, seven members of the PDP in the ward were also suspended alongside the PDP national chairman and a Disciplinary Committee set up to look into alleged offences
Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee in Ward 5 Ikuru town, Imie Benson, on his part said the suspension of Uche Secondus can only be lifted by the Ward Executive.
According to Imie Benson,”You can quote me anywhere. Until further notice and until you hear from us,our brother Uche Secondus remains suspended. I reaffirm suspension”.
Scores of Men and Women bearing various placards insisted that their son must leave the party and also supported the move by the Rivers State leadership of the PDP to suspend Secondus all together from the party.
The members of Ward 5 PDP express their unflinching support for Governor Nyesom Wike and to stand by whatever decision the PDP in the state takes on the Secondus matter.
