In a statement Chief Oyegun personally signed Tuesday in Abuja, he expressed hope that Prince Secondus will use his experience garnered over the years “to ensure that the PDP assume its role as a responsible opposition party” in Nigeria.
“On behalf of our great Party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), I congratulate the new National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus on his election at the PDP’s recent National Convention.
“Our Party wholeheartedly welcome opposition because we believe that democracy cannot thrive without a vibrant but responsible opposition that puts the nation first. This will often challenge you to balance partisan interests with overall national considerations.
“I assure the PDP National Chairman of my willingness to engage him robustly in an atmosphere devoid of acrimony and rancour. I believe that working together we can both elevate the language and temper of politics in our country, thereby providing the enabling environment for democracy to thrive in our country.”
