It’s Ayu’s Exit or Never, 8 PDP Governors


By News Editor, Abuja

The camp of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has placed two strong demands to settle the lingering crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Wike’s camp, in its demand to the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, insisted on the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.


The demands are receiving overwhelming support from eight PDP governors, which include Seyi Makinde, Bala Mohammed, Okezie Ikpeazu, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Samuel Ortom, and two others.


An agency source disclosed that they have also accepted to be part of the party’s presidential campaign, even though Wike is not interested in the DG of the campaign.

According to the source, the camp demanded to build confidence between the North and the South.


The Nation newspaper said, “After many hours of reviewing the events of the past few months, the two camps tabled their terns to heal wounds in the party ahead of the flag off of 2023 general election campaign.


“For Wike’s group, it foreclosed dumping of the party, and it has pledged to back the party during the campaign and the poll.


“Although the group said Wike was not interested in being the Director-General of the PDP Campaign Council, it demanded inclusion in the party to build confidence between the North and the South.


“The group insisted that the National Chairman of PDP, Dr Iyorchia Ayu must step aside to be able to fulfil its pledges to support and work for Atiku.


“Apart from asking Ayu to live up to his promise to leave the seat when Northerner emerges as a presidential candidate, the group cited a similar circumstance and how PDP resolved it in the past.


“Wike’s team said when ex-President Goodluck Jonathan emerged the presidential candidate of PDP, the then national chairman, Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo, quit for a Northern candidate, Dr Haliru Mohammed, to lead the party to victory.”
