Sack Secondus before PDP collapses, party youths tell leaders 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s youths have called for the immediate sack of the party’s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.
The call is coming on the heels of defections that hit the major opposition party in recent months.
A few weeks back, the Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade, had decamped to the ruling APC, and last week, PDP Senator, Peter Nwaoboshi, followed the same route.
Also, a story had filtered that Zamfara State governor, Bello Muhammad Matawalle, is set to defect to APC this week.
The PDP’s youths, under the aegis of South-South Youth Vanguard, in a statement by its National Chairman, James Efe Akpofure, urged the party’s leaders to stop the drift of decamping and address the negative situation in the party.
He said the party will be empty before Secondus leaves office by December if action is not taken.
Akpofure said the mass exodus of party members to APC would not be experienced if the Secondus-led National Working Committee (NWC) was doing well.
