A former Minister of Power and Steel, Dr Wole Oyelese, has accused the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, of being behind the crises in the many state chapters of the party, adding that he has encouraged the lingering crisis between Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose.
Oyelese said this in a statement in Ibadan on Tuesday.
The former minister said concerned PDP leaders found the silence of Secondus on the war between the governor and a former one disturbing.
He said despite the fact that the crises in the state chapters of the party in the South-West were threatening the survival of the opposition party, the national chairman was feeling unconcerned.
He said rather than finding ways to resolve the crisis, Secondus was encouraging factions because he was more concerned about his second term in office than the success of the party.
He said apart from the crisis between Makinde and Fayose, there was no amity in any state chapter of the PDP in the South-West.
Oyelese said, “It is daily becoming clear that the party is being torn apart by the same individual who is expected to weld it together. The issue of party organisation does not appear to have much meaning to the chairman as he appears to take special interest in encouraging factions.
“The situation we have in the South West which appears intractable is needless and should not be allowed to fester any further. The politics of survival and assertion currently going on is not in the best interest of the party as the loyal members stand to lose out.
“With the current position of things, there is hardly any state that the PDP can be sure of winning in the South West in upcoming elections. Political neophytes and dreamers may think and say otherwise, but the reality is stark enough to the discerning ones.
“It is therefore time for Secundus to change his style and realize that posterity will not be kind to him should the PDP be allowed to disintegra in the south west.
“The current “rofo-rofo” fight between Fayose and Makinde is needless and not in the best interest of the party in the South west and should be resolved by the chairman without further delay. It has certainly become a disgrace that must be stopped.
“The call now is for Secondus to wake up and bring sanity back into the party by being the father of all instead of the role of a sectional and factional leader which he currently seems to be playing.”
