The internal strife plaguing Nigeria’s main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), appears to be on the rise, while its leaders and other stakeholders are trying to mend fences.

The party’s board of trustees held a special session on Tuesday, opening its chamber to party leaders and all 13 party governors.

They discussed the crisis in the party, which has escalated, especially after the resignation of seven deputies to the party’s executive committee.

The reason for his resignation was that they were dissatisfied with the leadership of the party’s national chairman, Uche Secondus, accusing him of incompetence and demanding his resignation.

But he said he would not step down because he had committed no crime.

This has thrown the party into confusion and uncertainty.
