National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has declared that the party will reclaim and reposition Nigeria.

Secondus, who said this yesterday in Calabar, Cross River State at the inauguration of the state’s PDP Caretaker Committee and unveiling of the new party-state secretariat, said: “We have the experience and we are determined to restructure the country and hand it over to the youths.

“Nobody can stop Nigerian youths from having a voice on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. We are coming to restore the freedom of Nigerians, especially the youths.

“This is a quit notice to Governor Benedict Ayade, he should begin to pack his load and we also know that he is regretting joining the APC because more governors are joining the 14 PDP governors from the All Progressives Congress (APC).”

Secondus, who was joined by former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, former governors of Anambra and Cross River states, Peter Obi, Liyel Imoke and others, welcomed former Governor Donald Duke back to the party.

They also received eight members of the State House of Assembly, who refused to follow Ayade to the APC and restated their loyalty to the PDP.

Sokoto State Governor and Chairman, PDP Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, said the party was ready to take over government at the centre in 2023, adding: “When we take over government in 2023, we will start restructuring the country.”
