Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, has said the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus must vacate office.
Tambuwal said this is necessary in obedience to the court order sacking secondus.
The governor stated this while addressing newsmen yesterday after an emergency meeting of the forum in Abuja.
He said “We are a law-abiding party that believes in the rule of law. So when a High Court in Port Harcourt restrained Secondus from parading himself as national chairman of the party, we advised ourselves that was the way to go. We must comply with that court order.
“We had Akinwonmi presiding over the meeting of the National Working Committee today and he came to brief us on their decision which is in line with the previous meeting of the Governors Forum and the meeting of stakeholders that there should be NEC meeting on Saturday, where we shall be discussing issues about the national convention by the grace of God, which is still holding in October.
“The road can be bumpy but the most important thing is that we are still holding together strongly and that is what we assure our members and teeming supporters across the country.
“We are the hope of Nigeria and the hope of the future and we earned that confidence and trust of Nigerians and we are not going to betray it,”
However, it should be recalled that a Court has Reinstated Secondus as PDP National Chairman
