UCHE SECONDUS DISAPPEARS, WHERE ABOUT UNKNOWN, AS UNCERTAINTY SURROUNDS PDP NATIONAL CONVENTION THIS WEEKEND
Leaders, stakeholders and supporters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are now surrounded by uncertainty as to weather the National Convention of the party will still hold this weekend, October 30 and 31, as planned or not.
This follows the appeal instituted by the suspended National Chairman of the party, PRINCE UCHE SECONDUS.
SECONDUS is seeking a halt of the National Convention, pending when issues relating to his suspension are resolved.
At the moment, Prince UCHE SECONDUS has gone underground ahead of the National Convention of the party.
Sources told BraveViews that the objective of SECONDUS disappearance from the public view is to ward off pressure on him, from stakeholders of the PDP to withdraw his court appeal seeking the suspension of the convention.
Following the shaky nature of the convention, concerned stakeholders are keen to reach out to him to withdraw his case but with the disappearance of SECONDUS, the party’s stakeholders are simply awaiting court’s decision on the matter within the week.
A source in Port Harcourt told BraveViews that the decision of SECONDUS to remain incommunicado from PDP governors, members of the Board of Trustees, some presidential aspirants and elders of the party is worrisome and causing causing panic in the party.
Some concerned PDP leaders including state governors were said to be keen on meeting with him to resolve his grievances, while some other governors elected on the platform of the party and members of the National Convention Committee are consulting lawyers to weigh possible options.
One of the options was whether to take the risk of conducting the convention.
It was also learnt that some party leaders were considering alternatives in the event of a restraining order from the court.
The affected leaders have started considering December for the National Convention, which will be conducted by a new committee.
It was learnt that the two parties in court were wary of a likely fundamental pronouncement by the court on the PDP crisis this week.
