Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State has acknowledged to plotting the ouster of Prince Uche Secondus, the beleaguered former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
In an interview with BBC pidgin, Governor wike stated that his move to ensure the removal of Secondus followed his inability to tackle the crisis that ravaged the party.
According to Wike, “I have never denied of being involved in the removal of Secondus, he was not doing well so his ward first suspended him and I am glad they did that.
“I am not the type of governors that deny their actions. I know I have hand in his removal and I’m not afraid to say it.
“I did that because if we allow him to continue as PDP chairman, the party will die”.
Recall that following an internal crisis that rocked the opposition PDP lately, stakeholders in the party demanded that Secondus be removed as chairman.
An High Court in Rivers on August 24 granted an interim order, restraining Secondus from parading himself as the National Chairman of the party.
The move led to the recently concluded National Convention of the Party which saw the emergence of former Senate President, Dr Iyorchia Ayu as the new National Chairman of PDP.
