PDP:Obasanjo meets Secondus behind closed doors, asks others to excuse

When it was time to discuss the crisis rocking the party over moves by some party leaders and governors led by the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, to either shorten the tenure of the Secondus-led NWC or deny the members opportunity of contesting for second term, the former president reportedly asked all his guests to excuse him as he met with Secondus.

A crack had emerged in the PDP NWC two weeks ago, after the resignation of some officials and calls for Secondus’ resignation by some committee members.

Leaders of the PDP comprising governors, BoT, and National Assembly caucus, however, intervened a few days ago to save the opposition party. After a resolution of the crisis, the PDP leaders agreed that the party’s national convention should hold in October to elect a new leadership.

Saturday PUNCH learnt that the meeting between Obasanjo and Secondus, which lasted for about seven minutes, centred on how to resolve the crisis and also have a crisis-free national convention.

“Nobody could say what the two men actually discussed as none of us at the general meeting were called in when the two men met,” a source added.

It was also gathered that the former president met Ogundele on how to strengthen the party in Ogun State.

When contacted, Secondus confirmed the meeting with the former President.
