Embattled National Chairman of Nigeria’s main opposition party the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has denied the allegation that he is working against the interest Southern Nigeria.
Secondus stated this in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Ike Abonyi, in Abuja.
“The Media Office of Secondus will continue to respond to even laughable talks because of the danger of allowing disinformation to enter public space unchallenged,” he noted.
It stated that one of such piece of false information being dished out, was the allegation from the Rivers State Chairman of PDP, Desmond Akawor, that Secondus was working against Southern interest and that he had not paid his dues to the party.
The statement said, “We understand the frustration of the anti-Secondus crusaders who have become evidence shopaholics in their desperation to find points with which to achieve their ignoble goals.
“The Media Office sees their effort as a case of bad marketer selling a product, who puts in several efforts to convince buyers to no avail.
“Our response is that there is no truth in all the allegations and Southern interest will be grossly endangered if it is the likes of Akawor and his clique that are pushing it.”
The Secondus Media Office said that critical members of PDP, including discerning members of the public knew as a fact that no one person, no matter his position, could determine singularly the position of offices in the party.
