The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), seems to be deepening, as various parties are aligning behind their preferred national chairmanship candidate.

Reports say Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state has declared his support for the acting national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus.

Dickson , in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson said “There can’t be a vacuum and as servants of the law, we must be seen at all times to be people who are duty bound to uphold the law and to do the right things at all times in the eyes of the law.”

The Bayelsa Governor also condemned Ahmed Gulak for forcefully declaring himself the national chairman of the PDP.

You will recall that Gulak, on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, at about 1.45 p.m,  arrived at the PDP national headquarters, Abuja, and  immediately addressed a news conference announcing himself as the new PDP national Chairman.

The PDP Governors’ forum also issued a statement, through its chairman, Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state asking Secondus to step down and let the national secretary take over.

Secondus on his part, issued a statement through the PDP National Legal Adviser, Mr. Victor Kwon saying “There has not been any change whatsoever in the leadership composition of the party at the national level.”

The Peoples Democratic Party was the ruling party in Nigeria from 1999-2015.
