It was made known that the Deputy National Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Uche Secondus, has taken over as the acting National Chairman of the party.
This followed the resignation of the party Chairman, Adamu Muazu, who threw in the towel on Wednesday on health grounds.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, who confirmed this to journalists at the Wadata Plaza secretariat of the party, commended Muazu for his services to the PDP and love for the nation.
He said, “I can confirm that we have received the resignation of the National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu. I can confirm that the chairman, who had health challenges, stayed on for the primaries, for the campaigns and the elections and after consultations with his family, and in his personal interest, he had decided to resign.
“This party commends him for his services to the party and for his love for the nation. We wish him well. We will not forget him. In line with the constitution, the Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, has taken charge of the affairs of the party as acting national chairman of the party. The constitution does not recognise a vacuum.”
Metuh said Secondus would be in charge pending when a replacement would be appointed from the North-East.
