His seat is being occupied by the acting National Chairman of the party, Elder Yemi Akinwonmi.
Secondus had been seen in the company of other party leaders including chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, coming from his office to NEC Hall, the venue of the caucus meeting but was apparently prevailed upon not to enter.
In his opening remark at the meeting, Akinwonmi disclosed that a court order was served on him Friday morning just as he arrived at work at the secretariat.
He told the caucus that the letter was very important and wanted it discussed before any other thing.
However, he was encouraged to step it aside as he went to give his remaining opening address.
In his remark, the chairman of the PDP Governors Forum and Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, said that the governors under the party are working together for the good of the party and Nigeria.
He assured that the party leaders have the capacity to resolve all its problems.
Secondus came into the Wadata Plaza Abuja national secretariat of the main opposition party Friday morning and headed straight to his office.
He was later seen on his desk flanked by Elder Akinwonmi and former Ogun State governorship aspirant of the party, Ladi Adebutu.
Pressed to speak on his resumption, Secondus said the Kebbi State court order was being obeyed just as the previous one from Rivers State asking him to step aside, was obeyed.
He declined to speak more, saying that it was not yet time to grant an interview.
Recall that following the Rivers State High Court order, the party through its organs including the Board of Trustees (BoT) affirmed Akinwonmi as the acting national chairman.
However, the National Secretary of the party, Senator Umar Tsuari in response to a question Thursday had alerted that if there was another court order on Secondus, the party would obey it.
