The crisis in the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party has continued to linger despite several interventions by the stakeholders of the party.

The PDP crisis took a dramatic turn when High Court sitting in Port Harcourt restrained Uche Secondus from parading himself as the National Chairman of the party.
Before the court ruling, Secondus had insisted that he would not step down as PDP National Chairman and alleged that a powerful chieftain in the party wants to highjack the party from him because of the upcoming National Convention.

However, the chance of Secondus retaining his position appears to be getting slimmer as Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, who had been supporting him now wants Secondus to step aside as PDP National Chairman.
According to a report by Daily Post, Governor Tambuwal stated that the suspended National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus must vacate his office.

According to the report, there are two reasons why Tambuwal wants Secondus to step aside as the National Chairman of PDP.
In Obedience To The Court Order Sacking Him
One of the reasons Tambuwal wants Secondus to step aside as PDP National Chairman is to obey the court order which sacked him.

Governor Aminu Tambuwal who is the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum stated that the PDP Governors are ready to support the acting National Chairman of the party, Yemi Akinwonmi, and said Secondus needs to vacate his office.
To Prove PDP Is A Law Abiding Party
Another reason Tambuwal wants Secondus to vacate his office as PDP National Chairman is to prove that PDP is a law-abiding party.

Tambuwal explained that PDP is a law-abiding party that believes in the rule of law and the party cannot disregard the order of the High Court which restrained Uche Secondus from parading himself as the National Chairman of PDP.
Recall that Tambuwal had earlier supported Secondus before the High Court ruling which restrained him from parading himself as the National Chairman of the party.
