The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has Thursday, cautioned the ruling party to focus on the task of governance, rather than looking for opposition members to poach ahead of 2023.

He said this at a reconciliatory meeting with former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.

“We advise our brothers on the other side, especially some of these governors and leaders of APC that they should face the business of governance. Jumping around and looking for critical stakeholders of our party to poach will not resolve the issue of security or economy.
