Mr Uche Secondus acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has dismissed insinuations that Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu and Chief Tony Anenih were forced to resign their positions.
Mu’azu on Wednesday resigned his position as PDP National Chairman while Anenih resigned as Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT).
Secondus made the clarification on Thursday in Abuja when he led some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) to meet with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa
Fielding questions from state House correspondents the acting national chairman said, “nobody forced them to resign.’’
On why Anenih and Mu’azu resigned at the same time, Secondus said such situation occurs sometimes, adding that he had no reason to resign along with Mu’azu.
“You know that is not right, it is unconstitutional, because the chairman resigned voluntarily and the BoT Chairman also resigned voluntarily.
“There is no reason for us to resign because we have worked hard,” he added
Secondus said the PDP was intact, adding that its members would cooperate to re-organise and re-invent the party.
