He said his agenda is to rebuild, reposition the party and recapture power.

Secondus also observed that the former ruling party has learnt its lesson and is now better placed to toe a new path of progress for itself and the county by sticking to the core values of democracy.

The candidates who withdrew were Bode George, former Deputy National Chairman; Gbenga Daniel, Rasheed Ladoja, erstwhile Governors of Ogun and Oyo States, respectively, and Jimi Agbaje, PDP governorship candidate in Lagos State in 2015 elections.

The abnormalities that trailed the PDP National Convention have further exposed the PDP as a Party not ready and willing to change.
