The 2017 national convention Of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was held on Saturday December 9 to Sunday 10, 2017, at the Eagles Square in Abuja.
The convention didn’t end without a drama as most candidates from the southwest withdrew and endorsed a consensus candidate in Professor Adeniran.
Uche Secondus, the new PDP chairman once served as acting chairman of the PDP National Working Committee from 2015 to 2016.
Mr. Secondus was followed by a former Minister of Education, Tunde Adeniran, who scored a total vote of 231 votes, while the duo of Raymond Dokpesi and Taoheed Adedoja scored 66 and 0 votes respectively.
Mr. Secondus was declared winner shortly after two out of the chairmanship candidates accused officials in charge of the convention of allowing systematic rigging of the election.
Raymond Dokpesi and Tunde Adeniran said the processes were skewed against them, but in favour of Mr. Secondus.
Mr. Dokpesi told journalists covering the convention that he complained about the circulation of a document referred to as �Unity List” to delegates asking them to vote for the people on the list.
Mr. Dokpesi also said the chairman of the electoral sub-committee of the convention, former Governor Suswam, told him that there was nothing he could do about his complaint.
