PDP Shocking News: ‘Fresh PDP’ Emerges, Open Parallel Secretariat After Convention.

Uche Secondus, new PDP Chairman.
Some of us knew that the last had not been heard about the People’s Democratic Party’s recently held convention which was hijacked by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayodele Fayose as a group of aggrieved members have formed a parallel party and have also opened office for it in Abuja.

The group with brand name Fresh PDP (FPDP) has its parallel Secretariat at No. 10, ‎Tito Street, Asokoro, with flag of the party mounted outside the premises.

Director General of the FPDP, Prince Emmanuel Obi-Nwosu briefing newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja said that the group rejected the outcome of the Dec. 9 convention which produced Prince Uche Secondus as PDP National Chairman.

He said that convention was supposed to be an elective one where a new National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would emerge. “Most tragically, there was no election on that day; but a selection of predetermined persons who were eventually announced as new NWC members’’.

He said that the group was hurt by the brazen acts of unparalleled impunity and gross manipulation of the entire process leading up to the convention, alleging that the Sen. Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee, deliberately refused to release the delegates’ list until barely 24 hours to the convention.

He also claimed that ‎some persons on the “unity list” collected nomination forms after the official closing date for the process.

Obi-Nwosu, who contested the National Youth Leader position and lost, claimed that ‎the process of selecting the current NWC was concluded days before the convention, calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) all other relevant authorities ‎to disregard the purported election of the NWC. “As committed and dedicated candidates and party stakeholders, we have decided to ensure that internal democracy is sustained in the party and have decided that the dreams of our founding fathers who laboured and sacrificed so much to build the party are not destroyed.

“To this effect, Obi says, we have officially opened a national secretariat of the party here in Asokoro, Abuja, from where the authentic NWC of the party will be operating” and would also inaugurate its authentic national working committee by January 2018.
