Secondus, Issues Caution on Political Actions Amidst State Crises

Prince Uche Secondus, the former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has issued a caution to the political class, urging vigilance against actions that pose a threat to Nigeria’s emerging democracy and national security.

In particular, Secondus addressed the ongoing developments in Rivers State involving Governor Siminalayi Fubara and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike. He emphasized that any intervention by President Bola Tinubu must align with both the spirit and letter of the constitution to be viable.

This message was conveyed as part of Secondus’s Christmas greetings, during which he expressed hopes that the peace, love, and joy of the Christmas season would empower the nation to overcome economic and security challenges and build a better future.

Reflecting on the political crises affecting certain states since the inception of the current administration, the former PDP chairman cautioned the political class to be mindful of actions that could jeopardize democracy and national security.

Addressing the Rivers State crisis, Secondus stressed that any intervention by President Bola Tinubu should adhere to the constitutional framework for it to be implementable. He highlighted the importance of resolving political conflicts through statesmanship and a commitment to serving all Nigerians.

Secondus asserted, “Mr. President would have violated this sacred role if he acted in such a way and manner that gave an unconstitutional advantage to his political party, the APC, and an individual political godfather. This is the scenario the unenforceable agreement reached at the instance of Mr. President purports to foster!”

In alignment with other concerned Nigerians, Secondus called on President Buhari and relevant stakeholders to act in the interest of peace in Rivers State. He urged genuine, unbiased, widely accepted, and enforceable reconciliation of the crisis.

The former PDP chairman commended the people of Rivers State for maintaining peace and employing civil engagement despite what he described as “wanton provocation.” He extended Merry Christmas and New Year wishes to the people of Rivers State and all Nigerians.
