Newly elected Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus has lambasted the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) accusing them of running a “broken government” specialized in “false propaganda and intimidation.”

Secondus who was speaking on Monday at the PDP headquarters in Abuja while assuming office in a handover ceremony said the task ahead of the new executives is to rebuild the party in order to regain the lost grounds.

According to the new chairman, his team will never be distracted by the ruling APC who “Nigerians know for their kind of false propaganda” adding that “in the last two years, APC government have fed Nigerians with lies, revenge and intimidation.”

“You will take the new message to the grassroots because we know that the APC and their government are broken. They are running a broken government. We need to rescue our nation from their hands to rebuild our country once more.”

Secondus maintained that “Nigerians can no longer be fooled by false propaganda adding that with PDP Nigerians will hear the truth and the truth will save the country without relying on their false propaganda.”

The new PDP boss who waved the olive branch to aggrieved members declared a no victor no vanquished situation in the post PDP convention said the process of reconciliation has already commenced.

“By the special grace of God, elections have and gone and I declare to you that there is no victor, no vanquished. Our first assignment will be to bring all and sundry together, that is reconciliation.

“We we reassure leaders of our party especially those who contested this election. We have already started work and by the grace of God, it will be productive. We promise to rebuild the party to regain the lost grounds. That will start today.”

While commending the National Caretaker Committee for rescuing the PDP, Secondus said “Makarfi, you are the one that God chose at the right time in Port Harcourt in confidence. You know, power comes from God. So whether you like his face or not, he had a mission and he has accomplished that mission in the most trying times of our party, at a time people were so scared and afraid that there would be nothing like the PDP….You are our hero. History will remember you.”

He further told the NCC “We need you to standby because your advice, input will be very useful, if we must move forward.”

Secondus underscored the need to decentralise powers from the headquarters of the party to the state chapters, zonal chapters as well as the youth and women organs.

“Let me assure the state chapters and our state chairmen that from today, you will have full powers to operate to make sure that our party progress in the right direction and I will empower you on behalf of the EXCO. We will decentralize power from the centre so that we will be less busy here so that we can focus on same mission to reclaim our lost grounds in 2019.

He also said the  days of imposition and impunity were over.

“We will make sure that there is no more imposition. We will make sure that the era of impunity has come and gone and we want to warn our leaders and ourselves that with this take over today, let us not misuse the word, impunity. It has come and gone.

“The old order is gone. We will operate in the new order. There will be transparency in the presidential primaries.

“As I walked in through the gate, it was symbolic; I asked that the gate be thrown open. I hereby declared the gate to this party open to all our people irrespective of their religious beliefs, their class. They are free to come into the party especially those who left for one reason or the other.

“This is the only platform that does not belong to any group or big man. This is a party that provides for the big, the small and the less privileged.

“In the next couple of days, the NWC will decide when we will have our retreat. And after the retreat, we will come out with policies and direction and by the grace of God, we will hit the ground running, Secondus said.
