National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus has advised the former Kano Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau to face stop blaming him for his “political mistake”.
Secondus in a statement Sunday night by his spokesman, Ike Abonyi, said it was it laughable that the former Minister claimed he caused his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said: “The former Minister would just have carried on with his political life the way he wants it instead of trying to drag the name of the National Chairman into his well known itinerant political journey.
“Mallam Shakerau knows too well that no one person can really remove somebody from a party not to talk of a status of former Governor and a former Minister in the party. “The PDP National Chairman finds it embarrassing Mallam Shekerau’s continuous dropping of his name in the story of his exit which he long began and as a result made all discussions for peace and understanding difficult.
“Was Secondus the National Chairman of his party when Mallam Shekerau carried out all his previous political movements in and out of political parties including leaving APC to PDP in 2014 when it was Prince Secondus as deputy National Chairman along with the then PDP National Chairman, Adamu Muazu who facilitated his appointment as Minister of Education by the then President Goodluck Jonathan.”
Secondus said he understands the burden of conscience now weighing heavily on Shekerau due to his obvious undesirable political decision but that the latter should carry it and face the consequences instead of looking for somebody to blame.
He further noted that all his efforts to smoothen the rough areas as it concerns Kano was blocked by the former Minister whose mind was already made to continue his familiar itinerant political movement.
