Secondus said his absence from the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, the meeting was due to a Cross River State High Court order prohibiting him from parading himself as the party’s chairman, noting that he remains the PDP chairman until his term expires in December.

The statement read: “Prince Secondus by his unavoidable absence at the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting on Saturday was merely obeying an interim order from Cross River State High Court.


“As a law-abiding citizen who has been an adherent of rule of law as a basis for democracy, stayed away in respect for the courts.


“Prince Secondus’ four-year mandate to lead the party given on December 10, 2017, ends by December 2021.

“By this release, media office wishes to urge media houses and members of the public particularly beloved members of PDP to disregard any news suggesting that he has stepped down.”
