The National Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has appointed former Minister of Aviation and former Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Osita Chidoka, as his Special Adviser on Strategy and External Engagements.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Friday, August 17 in Abuja by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The statement said Chidoka’s appointment is with immediate effect.
“Chidoka, who is reputed for his ingenuity and organisational skills in public office, is expected to bring to bear his analytical expertise and wealth of experience in political strategy development, coordination and implementation, as the PDP sets for the 2019 general elections,” he said.
CNG recalls that Chidoka was the candidate of the United Progressives Party (UPP) at the November 2017 governorship election in Anambra, southeast Nigeria.
It is, however, unclear if Chidoka has defected to the PDP as he is yet to issue a statement to that effect until this appointment.
