Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayo Fayose have been acussed of imposing Secondus on the party.
A ‘unity list’ (which contained the names of favoured candidates for the 21 positions available for election yesterday)
”The PDP governors and some of our respected elders did their homework and we all agreed to adopt the Unity List which is fair to all.
“We reached a consensus on Secondus and all those on the list as the next members of the National Working Committee.
“The election was a walkover for Secondus and 20 others.
“In fact, some of those who stepped down earlier also adopted the Unity List and mobilized their state delegates to vote along the list.”
Adeniran and some of his supporters walked out of the Eagle Square, Abuja at about 9.11pm in protest against the adoption of the Unity List and compelling of delegates to vote for those on the list.
