The National chairmanship aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has vowed to deliver the presidential stool in 2019, if elected as the party’s chairman.
The aspirant made this known in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital during his campaign in the state.
He said: “My team and I are here to officially inform you and our leaders from Ebonyi state that on the 9th and 10th December, I will be standing election for the Chairmanship of our party and I have only one mission.
“Our mission is to rebuild, to reposition and to regain the lost ground come 2019 general election. We are very committed with passion to make sure that our party within the next few months is quickly repositioned and be ready for elections.
“We will remain focused on our mission because I came from the state that relatively have peace and a zone that also has peace. I will focus on only one agenda which is to rebuild, to reposition and at the same time to regain the lost ground.
“In the past, the whole order has been that the Abuja politicians took over the responsibility of our party at the state and the grassroots. If God gives me the responsibility, we will return power to the
grassroots and our reward system will change.
“People that cannot vote at the ward levels, at the polling unit levels and they are now recognized in Abuja. The people in Abuja have data, contact and collections. What is politics all about if not to win election?. And if you cannot win election, you are not so important.
So, we will bring new system that our people will be very happy to take their destiny in their own hands.
“We will allow the constituencies, states to conduct congress and I am saying that because of my experiences as a state party chairman. Let the leaders in the state organize and elect popular candidates. We don’t have security, we don’t have INEC and Abuja cannot change and begin to superintend over whatever decision of the states that have
“All we need to do in my time, we will concur with ever the decision of the state. If the popular candidate is elected and stands election he will win. I will leader the Wadata Abuja and I will rotate the headquarters of our party .
“It is time to get back to the people with massive and aggressive membership drive to them and return power to them so that. We don’t have time at all.
“Anyone that wants to contest this election that will not win his ward
and constituency and cannot win his state and zone has no business . It is time to know that if you cannot deliver your constituency, if you cannot deliver your state and you are seeking for the office of the National Chairman, which votes do you want?.
“It is totally wrong and absurd for anyone to think that he can take the votes of Ebonyi, you cannot deliver your state and you are now our National chairman. By the special grace of God, I will deliver my state and I will deliver my zone to the cover of the party. If wedeliver state by state, that is the only way we can win the 2019 general election; the Presidency and all other positions,” he added.
