You must hail from Daura to get a federal appointment, says Secondus
Uche Secondus, National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused President Muhammadu of practising “nuclear nepotism” where only his kinsmen can get federal appointments.
“People are being killed on daily basis, nuclear nepotism is in vogue; you have to come from Daura to be appointed into a federal position,”Secondus told members of the PDP caucus in the National Assembly on Wednesday while leading the National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP to “rub minds” with members of the party caucus in the National Assembly.
“Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gun powder waiting to explode; only the PDP can save it,” he said. “This is the time for all to stand up to save this country and all eyes are on PDP to lead the way, I am ready and determined even to be arrested for us to regain our liberty in this land.”
He also said that the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration had left the Presidential Villa spiritually but the physical expulsion of the party would be confirmed at the 2019 general election.
The PDP Chairman further accused the APC of having nothing to show as achievement in nearly three years of its administration.
In a statement by Ike Abonyi, his Spokesman, the PDP Chairman said: “I have come with members of the NWC of our party to thank you for the mandate you gave us at the successful National Convention last year and to charge you to redouble your efforts for the eventual humiliation of APC in 2019.
“What we have ruling Nigeria today at the villa is a broken party and a broken government, spiritually APC has already left the villa, what we must fine tune is the physical accomplishment.”
