The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has urged the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to face governance and stop disturbing PDP members (especially governors).
Secondus spoke while addressing newsmen following a meeting of the PDP National Working Committee with former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, at his Abuja residence on Thursday. FFK was rumoured to have been planning to defect to the APC.
“We want to advise our brothers on the other side, especially some of these governors and leaders of APC to face the business of governance. Jumping around and looking for critical stakeholders of our party to poach will not resolve the issue of security or economy.
“They are aware that security has broken down, the economy has broken down. They should face that business for which they are elected. I believe that this country belongs to all of us and we need unity to move it forward.
“Our brother (Fani-Kayode) is firm and a man of his words. There is no amount of trick that will make him sway otherwise. He is firmly with PDP and we are back to business while preparing for 2023.”
Also speaking, FFK pledged his loyalty to the PDP.
“I want to here and now state that whatever issue there may have been has been resolved. We are moving forward as one. I never left the PDP; I’m in PDP and am proud to be here.
“In any political family, if anybody feels hurt, people are meant to reach out. And this is an example of any quality leadership that the National Chairman of the PDP and his working committee have provided for our party.”
