Resign Now, Rivers Federal Lawmaker Tells National PDP Chairman
Ahead of the 2023 general elections, and to ensure a brighter and stronger footing for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to reposition for the necessary victory over the clueless All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government, the federal lawmaker representing Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Rt. Hon. Dumnamene Robinson Dekor has urged the incumbent National PDP Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus to resign honourably.
Rt. Hon. Dekor, Chairman, House Committee on Host Communities said there could not be a better time for the Prince Uche Secondus-led PDP to quit than now for a more focused leadership to be put in place.
The federal lawmaker who was also a one time Deputy Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly, and Commissioner of Works hinged his call for Prince Secondus’ resignation on what he described as heading a ‘visionless leadership’.
The Ogoni born politician noted with dismay the ceaseless conflicts, bickering and defections that characterize the Uche Secondus administration, positing that the earlier his party leadership is replaced the better for the PDP.
According to the lawmaker, the PDP is the only hope Nigerians have for survival in view of the economic quagmire the APC has plunged the country into, and cannot afford to go in for the 2023 general elections under a leadership that cannot deliver.
The National PDP leadership as presently constituted, he said, does not have all it takes to reclaim the party’s mandate under the prevailing political realities in the country.
“All we need is a leadership that has grassroots support across the breadth and length of the nation and not a leadership that is polarized. It’s therefore very imperative to do the needful and this is the time”, Rt. Hon. Dekor declared.
