The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Prince Uche Secondus, has said the party will immortalize late former Board of Trustee (BoT) Chairman, Tony Anenih.
The party chairman stated this during a visit to the Abuja residence of the former Police officer on a condolence visit.
Secondus noted that Anenih mentored a legion of leaders in the country, adding that the late political leader was not just an elder statesman but “a fountain of wisdom that we often run to, to get wisdom and advise.”
“There are no words to describe our great father and leader who among others founded the PDP.
“He worked tirelessly from 1998 to 2015; he worked hard to groom the PDP,” he said.
The PDP national chairman recalled how Anenih located and setup the PDP presidential campaign office popularly called Legacy House, where he “did all the work to return Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.”
“We applied all the strategies and advice and in the process, governors came back to the party. National Assembly members defected to the party.
“This was as a result of the advice he gave and as children, we took them and today PDP has become the party of choice for all Nigerians.
“We had wished that God would spare him to enjoy the fruits of his labour, not by any other means but to see the party return to power. We will never forget all the works of Anenih to the PDP,” he said.
