Youths in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have called on the leadership of the party to immediately sack national chairman, Uche Secondus.
The call is coming on the heels of defections that hit the major opposition party in recent months.
The PDP youths, under the aegis of South-South Youth Vanguard, in a statement by its national chairman, James Efe Akpofure, urged the party’s leaders to halt the drift of decamping and address the negative situation in the party.
Akpofure said the PDP will be empty before Secondus leaves office by December, if action is not taken.
Akpofure added that the mass exodus of party members to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would not have occurred if the Secondus-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the party was doing well.
In May, Cross River governor, Ben Ayade, decamped to the APC.
Also, a top senator from Delta State, Peter Nwaoboshi, joined the APC last week.
Zamfara governor, Bello Matawalle, is also said to have secretly defected to the ruling party, with the official reception for him set to take place on Tuesday.
David Umahi, Ebonyi State governor, had decamped to the APC in November 2020.
