Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the court order barring him from acting as the party’s National Chairman.
On Monday, a Rivers State High Court barred Secondus from acting as the PDP’s National Chairman.
The judge who issued the order, Justice O. Gbasam, also approved Secondus’ suspension as a member of the party until the hearing and decision on the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.
Secondus reacted by pledging to defend himself in court if summoned, according to a statement released by his media aide, Ike Abonyi.
He claimed that he is not concerned by a court order.
“The Media Office of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman has been inundated with calls from newsrooms in response to a press statement sent to newsrooms by Kelvin Ebiri, Special Assistant, Media to Rivers State Governor, Bar Nyesom Wike, announcing that ‘Court Restrains Secondus from Parading Himself as National Chairman, Member of the PDP.’
“Secondus and the parties will defend themselves if they are taken to court.
In a short statement, his aide stated, “The PDP and Secondus are not frightened of court; our party is a child of history, owned by Nigerians, bigger than any man or organization, including desperadoes.”
