Emerging report revealed that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is set to endorse Prince Uche Secondus, as the party’s National Chairman, in the next Convention, to take over from Ahmed Makarfi.
Most aspirants jostling for the post of the National Chairman that come from the South-West, were allegedly ditched for Secondus.
Post-Nigeria recalls, that Secondus was the Deputy National Chairman during the reign of Ahmed Adamu Mu’azu, and became Acting National Chairman, when his then embattled principal threw in the towel, on May 20, 2015. 

Uche Secondus, was in February 2016, arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for illegally receiving 23 luxury vehicles valued at N310 million, from a controversial Businessman, Jide Omokore.
A source at the EFCC had said that the vehicles included a Mercedes G63 and a Range Rover Autobiography.
A reliable source from the South-South, said that a Governor from the region is leading the team of those praying for Secondus to take over leadership from Makarfi.
“Secondus is his choice, and he is forcing him on the party. So, I can tell you that even among the Governors, some of them are not in the picture of what the few are doing. This is imposition ‎rearing its head.

“‎But in a free and fair contest, Secondus will not win, because most of the Northern delegates, and even those from the South-West will not vote for him.”
Another source, a former Member of the House of Representatives, also confirmed that some Governors and power brokers were gunning for Secondus, but secretly.
“‎They are drawing a slate. They want to confuse people by throwing up many aspirants for each position, to later harmonize and get the candidates of their choice.
“Secondus is their choice, but they just want to open the space for others to contest, in order that there should be ‎a sense of inclusive participation.
“And the Convention is likely to go to Port Harcourt, if they don’t have a consensus; but if they do, they would hold it in Abuja.
“Look at what‎ happened in Anambra primaries and the indications coming out from Ekiti. If we have not learnt from our past mistakes, we are finished”, the source said.
