- The national chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, says the APC has failed to fulfil any of the promises it made in 2015
- He describes the ruling party as a sinking ship
- Emmanuel Uduaghan says the PDP should not have challenged the federal government to produce the looters’ list
The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has said no amount of intimidation will stop the party from defeating the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 elections.
Secondus made the statement on Saturday, April 21, in Asaba, the Delta state capital at the endorsement of Governor Okowa as the sole candidate of Anioma nation for the 2019 governorship election in the state.
He said the ruling party had failed to fulfil any of the promises it made in 2015 which made Nigerians to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari, the Sun reports.
“I bring you greetings from the national secretariat, and want to say that the part is very proud of Okowa. We have promised to provide a level playing field for everybody. There will be no imposition or impunity. This is the new rebranded PDP, and we are determined to regain the lost ground," Secondus stated.
"No amount of intimidation, lies or propaganda will stop the PDP from taking over in 2019. If they like, they should arrest and detain our leaders. If they like they should continue to announce names of alleged corrupt Nigerians, they will not get through again with lies and propaganda.

“APC is a sinking ship and that is why they are harassing and intimidating everybody and telling all sorts of lies that will not work this time. They did it in 2015, but it is not going to work in 2019."
Meanwhile, former governor of Delta state, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has said the PDP will suffer for challenging the APC led government to produce looters’ list.
Tribune reports that Uduaghan spoke on Saturday, April 21 in Warri. The former governor who is an aspirant for Delta South Senatorial District said the PDP put itself under unnecessary pressure by asking the government to produce the looters’ list.
He said he faced a similar situation when the Delta state government claimed he left behind a huge debt of about N600 billion.
Uduaghan said he was eventually cleared when it was reported that he actually left behind a debt of N187 billion and not N600 billion.
