PDP former acting chairman Uche Secondus, emerged win of the 2017 PDP National convention.
Mr. Secondus beat three other contestants to emerge victorious in a closed contested election held at the Eagles Square Abuja on Saturday.
The chairman of the electoral committee of the convention, and former Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, who announced the results
Mr. Secondus scored a total of 2,000 votes out of the total number of 2,296 votes cast.
Tunde Adeniran, scored a total vote of 231 votes, while Raymond Dokpesi and Taoheed Adedoja scored 66 and 0 votes respectively.
The Rivers State politician was declared winner shortly after two out of the chaiirmanship candidates accused officials in charge of the convention of allowing systematic rigging of the election.
Raymond Dokpesi and Tunde Adeniran said the processes were skewed against them, but in favour of Mr. Secondus.
Mr. Dokpesi told journalists covering the convention that he complained about the circulation of a document called “Unity List” to delegates asking them to vote for the people on the list.
He said the chairman of the electoral sub-committee of the convention, former Governor Suswam, told him that there was nothing he could do about his complaint.
On his part, Mr. Adeniran, through his spokesperson who spoke with members of the press at Eagles Square, venue of the convention, called for the cancellation of the entire exercise because it was compromised.
The convention committee had earlier announced the ban on all form of campaign at the venue of the convention.
The chairman of the National Convention Planning Committee, and governor of Delta state, Ifeanyi Okowa, while reacting to the issue, said his committee had not officially received any complaints about the conduct of the election.
Also, the governor of Akwa Ibom state, Udom Emmanuel, who spoke with AIT, said the “Unity List” in circulation could not affect the outcome of the election.
“I have not seen any delegate looking at a list before casting their vote and it is practically impossible for delegates to memorise all the 21 names on the list and remember them as they vote,” he said.

Mr. Emmanuel also said the list in contention could have emanated from any source.
However, despite the protets and complaints, Mr. Secondus and all the other elected officials who will form the new National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP were sworn into office immediately after the announcement.
They were sworn in by a lawyer and a former candidate for the Ondo state governorship, Tayo Jegede.
