Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the newly elected National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has promised the Yorubas that the South West region will get juicy positions in PDP government.
He also said the party was searching for a presidential candidate that will unite the entire country.
In an interview with Punch Newspaper, Secondus said: “We want a President that must unite the country. There must be peace before you can govern. You can see that the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government is totally broken. For peace to reign, we need to change it.
“There is no peace in the North-East, there is restiveness in the South-South and the South–East, herdsmen are killing people in the North-Central and even South-West every day, and there is no part of the country that is safe.
“We need a person that will, therefore, unite the country. Under the APC’s watch, the unity of the country is threatened. We will provide a credible platform for national unity.
“We are going to work hard to win in all the zones. The South-West will get juicy positions in the government if we win and we hope to win. I will not say anything more than that.”
