The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, does not believe the new coalition being led by former President Olusegun Obasanjo is a threat to the PDP ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Secondus stated this in Asaba, the Delta State capital, during a reception organised by the Delta State chapter of the PDP ahead of the meeting of the National Working Committee of the party and governors on Sunday.

The reception was attended by the governors of Rivers, Gombe and Abia states; Nyesom Wike, Ibrahim Dankwambo and Okezie Ikpeazu respectively, and National Assembly members elected on the platform of the PDP.

“The new coalition will never be a threat because we are a solid political party founded by our founding fathers. We are solid on the ground, and I believe that they are a threat to the other parties and not our party.

The PDP National Chairman restated the party’s preparedness to return power to the grassroots as the party commenced moves to reclaim power at the centre.

Secondus said, “Power will no longer reside at Wadata, power must truly go back to the people to make their choices without fear of favour.

“The old order of imposition will no longer exist in the present PDP as we have decided that in order to rebuild the party we must return the party to the people to give them the free choice of choosing their representatives at all levels.”
