- Uche Secondus has been mandated by the PDP chapter in the United States to lead the party to victory in 2019
- The party members gave the mandate during its three-day 2018 annual convention
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Houston, Texas, United States chapter has called on party leader, Prince Uche Secondus, to flush out the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government come 2019.
The group chairman, Dr Harold Mogokwu, in his remarks, said the APC and President Buhari had bluntly refused to respond to the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians, Tribune reports.
He said: “Nigerians are suffering untold hardship in the hands of Buhari and APC. Our national chairman is working round the clock with NWC members as well as party leaders and organised groups across the country to take back Nigeria from the evil grip of anti-democratic forces domiciled in Aso Rock Villa and elsewhere.
“This convention is timely and what we have discussed so far will strengthen the Houston Chapter and by extension the larger American Chapter under Dr Harold.
“Our party remains the biggest party in the black continent and as a major player in a constitutional democracy, we cannot afford to fold our hands while APC and its clueless leaders destroy what took PDP 16 years to build.
“I urge you to increase your membership drive and commence extensive advocacy, such that would further drum the numerous socioeconomic and political atrocities of APC and President Buhari, to the ears of world leaders and international organisations around the world.
“Our country has never been this divided and polarised by politics of hate, vengeance, deceit and cabalism as can be seen in Buhari-APC government. Nigeria is one united family with freedom of religion and association. We must rise up as a people to condemn the evil perpetrated by Buhari’s APC government.
“The gains of the convention must, therefore, reflect in our strong desires to build a new Nigeria of our dreams, and this can only be possible if we rise up against the APC totalitarian government bedevilled by anti-people socioeconomic policies and programmes.

“We can change the narratives and make the political pendulum to swing in our party’s direction in 2019, all we need do is to regularly reach out to our people back home and to make them see the reasons for the drastic change from darkness to light and from APC to PDP."
NAIJ.com earlier reported that the PDP on Monday, April 30, described President Muhammadu Buhari's performance at the meeting with US President Donald Trump as embarrassing as he did not project the economic interests of the country.
The opposition party, in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said it was alarming that President Buhari failed to address the issue of the drop in the US purchase of Nigerian crude oil.
