Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has accused Uche Secondus, suspended National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of trying to sabotage the party.

Wike was reacting to the Appeal Court’s ruling which dismissed Secondus’ application to stop the party’s National Convention.

He stressed that no individual, including Secondus, can thwart the mission of the party to rescue Nigeria from bad leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Speaking in Port Harcourt, the state capital, Wike said: “What Secondus is doing is to sabotage the efforts of Nigerians, the efforts of PDP from rescuing this country from the hand of the party that has failed the country. And it is not fair.

“This is a party that has given you everything and there’s nothing wrong in making sacrifice. Even if, assuming though not conceding, that anything was wrong, we expected that having achieved what you have achieved in your life from this party, there is nothing wrong in making sacrifice.

“Our constitution provides that if a national chairman is removed, the deputy national chairman from that zone will immediately be the chairman or acting chairman as the case may be.

“And so, when Secondus was removed, he handed over to the acting national chairman now. So, the act has already been done, completed. So, what will the court say when someone is already acting and supervising that office,” he said.
