PDP crisis: Obasanjo, Secondus hold closed-door meeting

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, and former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, held a closed-door meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Thursday.

Details of the meeting could not be ascertained as of the time this report was filed.

It was gathered that Secondus arrived at Obasanjo’s Penthouse residence at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, alongside his entourage at about 12:19pm and went straight into the meeting with the former President.

It was also gathered that the PDP Chairman’s visit may not be unconnected with the internal squabble within the ranks of the opposition party.

For over a period of time now, the PDP National Chairman has been battling to keep his seat following the crisis rocking the opposition party in Nigeria.

Recall that two weeks ago, some officials of the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) had tendered their resignation while some called for the resignation of Secondus.

However, last week Tuesday, leaders of the PDP comprising governors, Board of Trustees, National Assembly caucus, intervened to save the opposition party and after a resolution of the crisis, the PDP leaders agreed that the party’s national convention should hold in October to elect new leadership.
