A member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, has described as provocative the adoption of Mr. Uche Secondus for the party’s national chairmanship position by the South-South stakeholders.

Babatope, in a statement on Tuesday, said the South-South stakeholders were being unfair to the South-West, whose turn, according to him, was to produce the next PDP National Chairman.

He described the action of the South-South stakeholders as divisive and berated the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, over his claim that the South-South was providing succour to the PDP.

Babatope, who accused the Chairman of the PDP Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, of dishonesty, asked Makarfi to excuse himself from all committees of the party’s convention.

Babatope said, “We (the Yoruba) will never be servile to anyone at all. And most importantly, we will never compromise on the position of the National Chairman of our great party.

“It is our turn! And this must be respected. Anything less than this is unacceptable.

“This is why Makarfi must recuse himself from the composition of all committees of the convention.

“Makarfi is not honest. He is working for Wike. That is the absolute truth.”
