Uche Secondus ‘Mua’zu was not forced to resign’ – PDP Acting Chairman says

The acting Chairman said Mua’zu’s resignation and
that of the BOT Chairman’s, Tony Anenih was a mere


The Acting Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party
(PDP), Uche Secondus , has said that the party’s former
leader, Adamu Mua’zu , was not forced to resign from
his position.
Secondus said this while speaking to State House
correspondents after meeting with President Goodluck
Jonathan at the Presidential Villa on Thursday, May 21.
On the ‘coincidence’ of the resignation of Mua’zu and
the party’s Board of Trustee (BOT) Chairman, Chief
Tony Anenih, Secondus said, “Sometimes it happens
that way. Nobody forced them to go.”
He also said other members of the PDP National
Working Committee (NWC) will not resign, stating that
there is no reason for any of the remaining NWC
members to resign as they all have their tenures still
“You know that is not right, it is unconstitutional,
because the chairman did that voluntarily, and the BoT
Chairman also did that voluntarily. Some of the others
have tenures, at the end of our tenure if we are re-
elected, fine, if not that is the right thing to do,” he
Mua’zu tendered his resignation letter on Wednesday,
May 20, as well as Anenih.
It will be recalled that shortly after PDP’s massive loss
in the March 28 and April 11 general elections, the party
leaders and some members had pressured Mua’zu and
other members of the NWC to resign from their
position, accusing them of betrayal.
