The former National Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mark Jacob, has revealed the reason why the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, insisted that the former PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, must step down as the national chairman of PDP.
According to Mark Jacob, Nyesom Wike ensured that Uche Secondus stepped down as the national chairman of PDP because he wanted to be the presidential candidate of PDP in the 2023 election. Mark Jacob explained that Wike knew that if Uche Secondus remained the national chairman of PDP, then his ambition of becoming the presidential candidate of the party will not work.
According to Mark Jacob, Wike pushed out Uche Secondus and brought in Iyorchia Ayu from the north. Mark Jacob went on to say that after Southern governors of PDP agreed that the presidential candidate of the party must come from the south, the same southern governors ended up betraying one another and their betrayal led to Atiku Abubakar becoming the presidential candidate of the party.
Mark Jacob stated that Wike’s actions in PDP are personal. He claimed that if Wike wanted the south to produce the presidential candidate of PDP, then he should have supported a candidate from the South-East to become the presidential candidate of the party because many PDP members believed that the candidate should come from the South-East.
