"We learnt that they are building more prisons. Let them go ahead and build more. They will be the one to stay there."

The National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, stated this in Abuja at the opening of a two-day retreat for members of the newly elected National Working Committee of the party.

Secondus warned that those building the prisons might be the occupiers, adding that it was wrong for the Federal Government to be persecuting members of the PDP because of their refusal to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

"We learnt that they are coming after our members in January. Let them continue. How many people will they put in jail?

"They should stop intimidating people. They should remember that almost everybody they had put in jail wrongly came back to become President.

"This is because they were jailed unjustifiably.  So, if they are persecuting us, let them continue. But we will not withdraw the ultimatum we gave them to quit Aso Rock in 2019.”

Secondus stated that it was wrong to assume that the PDP was not ready to fight corruption, stressing that the regime of former President Olusegun Obasanjo established institutions that he said "are currently waging a war against graft in Nigeria".
