Things seem to have fallen apart for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) again as a new faction emerged with a new name tagged; Fresh PDP
The group is made up of some aspirants who lost out at the party’s recent national convention that elected Uche Secondus as its new chairman.
The elective convention was marked by internal discontent especially from the southwest candidates who pulled out in protest of the elective process.
The new faction is led by a certain Emmanuel Nwosu who said he stands against the imposition of a unity list on members at the convention.

Fresh PDP is not yet a registered party.
Despite the faction setting up a secretariat, it is not yet recognised as an official political party as it was not part of the new 21 political parties registered by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
However, it is possible that the party is one of the 80 new groups seeking the commission’s approval to be registered as political parties ahead of the 2019 general elections.
