The former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus on Tuesday, formally handed the reigns of authority to the Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee.
At the event, Secondus said the party is strong and is working towards ensuring a successful National Convention which would produce leaders who in turn would lead the party to victory in 2019.
He said, “The party is one and is strong. On behalf of members of the former National Working Committee of the PDP, I am here to handover to the Caretaker committee chairman, we are ready to work with you, we are ready to cooperate with you.”
Secondus enjoined party leaders at all levels to go back to their localities and rebuild the party because all politics is local. He stressed that it is not enough to remain in Abuja and claim to have a large following.
Also speaking at the event, the Chairman of the BoT, Sen. Walid Jibrin said the BoT never took over the party that all that it did was to hold the assets and liabilities of the party in trust.
He said he was handing over the secretariat to the Makarfi-led committee and appealed to party members to cooperate with the committee to deliver on its mandate.
