It further stated that former PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus, was also appointed as technical adviser to the presidential candidate.

The former vice-president charged the appointees to employ their vast experiences to attain victory for the party in the 2023 general elections, saying the appointments are to take immediate effect.

The PDP is facing a divided house, ahead of the election. The southern governors are protesting the fact that, virtually all the juicy positions in the party are being occupied by their Northern counterparts.
