The dismissed national chairman of the PDP, Mr. Uche Secondus has insisted that he wouldn't withdraw the case from court on the ground that he wanted justice. The PDP can take one particular step, or do one key thing to make him pull out the case. The matter can hinder the forthcoming national convention.
The PDP has already concluded to have a new national chairman. The opposition party had zoned the chairmanship to northern region, and Mr. Iyorchia Ayu has been adopted as the consensus candidate. But the case at court would seriously affect the whole plan of the party. Hence, PDP leaders should act now to make Secondus withdraw the case.
One thing that Uche Secondus wants is justice. But he also said that he wanted to save the PDP from the hands of people who want to hijack the party structure. Recall that he had issues with the Rivers State governor, Mr. Nyesom Wike. And Secondus now claims to want justice.
The Board of Trustees chairman, should swiftly intervene. The PDP can't afford to let the matter remain in court. The board of trustees Chairman should send for key party leaders and they should all meet Uche Secondus to appeal to him to withdraw the case from court.
The PDP is quite lucky to have top leaders even though it suffered from serious and massive defections. The Board of Trustees chairman can call Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, Mr. Seyi Makinde, Mr. Bukola Saraki and few others.
Of course, these top national PDP leaders can go and meet the erstwhile chairman of the party. They need to explain to him that the overall interests of the party are very important. And that the party can't go back in its plans to organise the national convention. Hence, Uche Secondus should accept his own fate.
Meanwhile, the party should be ready to make a deal with Mr. Uche Secondus. He must be concerned about his future most especially in the party. The top politicians who will visit him should assure him that the party won't forget his sacrifice once the PDP takes over power in 2023.
Lastly, the PDP should recall the tough time of Ali Modu Sheriff and Mr. Ahmed Makarfi. The two men slugged it out over the PDP chairmanship with different court matters. The leadership of the PDP won't want a repeat of the time. Hence, they should take a step to make Secondus withdraw the case immediately.
