Before his defeat, pressures had been on him to hand over the office of the national secretary and concentrate on his governorship campaigns.A former national youth leader of the PDP, Sunday Udeh Okoye was nominated by the South-east to succeed Anyanwu, but the power tussle did not allow him to assume office.
