"In reacting to revelations of how money-for-votes and systematic rigging was brazenly perpetuated during the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the All Progressives Congress (APC) is mindful of the popular axiom: "A leopard can not change its spot", the statement said.
Tunde Adeniran and Chairman, Daar Communications, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi at the PDP national convention held on Saturday in Abuja.
Before the election, Secondus was a deputy national chairman of the party and was touted as the PDP's longest-serving official, having risen through the ranks since 1999.
It is indeed laughable that the APC which has roundly failed in not only managing the affairs of the country but also its own internal issues would recourse to panic mode just because the PDP has succeeded in uniting its fronts by conducting of a very credible elective National Convention.
Twenty-one positions were contested for in the new National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP with Senator Umaru Tsauri from Katsina state also emerging as the new National Secretary of the party.

Wada, who pleaded with the losers to close ranks with Secondus to move the party forward as the outcome was laid bare for every one to see, said: "I urge them to see reason that we have taken a big step forward to stabilise the leadership". If you look at the margin of victory, it was a landslide.
But with the announcement of Uche Secondus as the victor of the national chairmanship position, Dokpesi said that the delegates had spoken.
He said: "Millions of our people, who lost their jobs in the last two years and those who struggled through higher institutions of learning to receive education, but could not find jobs in the last two years, but who believe that when PDP returns, there will be hope for them". "Congratulations PDP as I wish all our members the best of luck".
