They described the party leader’s position as unpatriotic, stating that he was pushed by the will to retain his office because the PDP National Chairman.

The group additionally claimed that Secondus simply instructed Nigerians he was an individualistic politician whose sole intention in politics was his personal gain.

“This his selfish sport plan won’t work. PDP is morally and constitutional obligated to zone the presidential ticket of the occasion to South-East geopolitical zone as a result of it’s the solely zone that has not produced Nigerian president earlier than. 

“The individuals of the South-East have paid their dues within the improvement and development of the nation and now could be the time for the party to pay back Ndigbo for its years of assist and solidarity to the PDP. It’s no secret that South East and Ndigbo wherever they’re have at all times voted for the occasion. For example, PDP has at all times made important affect in Lagos State as a result of the igbo dwelling in Lagos State have at all times voted for the occasion. Why would Secondus attempt to insult the sensibility of the South-East.”
