“Congratulations But Be Ready For Criticism From Us” – PDP Chairman, Uche Secondus Tells Oshiomhole

Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus has extended his party’s goodwishes to the new chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiohmole.

Secondus however added a clause to the message, telling Oshiomhole to expect criticism from the opposition party, PDP.

Oshiomhole, who was a former governor of Edo state and one time Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) president, was unanimously elected as APC’s chairman on Saturday.

In a statement on Monday, Secondus expressed hope that Oshiomhole’s emergence would deepen democracy in the country.

The statement issued by Ike Abonyi, Secondus’ spokesman, read:

“On behalf of my party, the main opposition PDP, I wish to congratulate you and pray that democracy would gain a lot in your climbing to the exalted office of your party.

“May I assure you of the PDP’s readiness to provide robust and constructive criticism and hope that the environment would be made conducive for all democratic institutions to strive.”
