Prince Uche Secondus, PDP National Chairman.

SAN FRANCISCO, January 31, (THEWILL) – Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have called for the intervention of the United States, United Kingdom, and the European Union in the practice of democracy in Nigeria.

This is as the leadership and members of the Party on Friday, protested at the embassies of the US and the UK in Abuja but postponed that of the EU.

The PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, said their presence was to present protest papers to the embassies as they continue their protest against the judgement of the apex court which sacked the PDP candidate, Emeka Ihedioha, as the governor of Imo State.

Starting from the party’s national secretariat, they walked through some streets of the nation’s capital to the embassies where they submitted their petitions.

Those who took part in the protest include members of the PDP National Working Committee (NWC), Board of Trustees (BoT), and National Assembly, among others.
