National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP),Iyorchia Ayu made a statement on Wednesday describing those calling his resignation from office ahead of the 2023 election as ‘Children’ . This led to reaction of The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike , Thursday calling Ayu a greedy and ungrateful man who was only after his own interest .
“I have not violated any rules; in fact, I am working to bring reforms to the party. I am truly not bothered by the unnecessary controversy being generated. When we started PDP, these children were not around. They are children who do not know why we formed the party. We will not allow any individual to destabilise our party,” Ayu stated.
“You can imagine what power can do. You can imagine the ingratitude; how people can be ingrates in their lives. I thought as a chairman of a party who wants to win elections, your business is to bring peace to your party; your business is not to divide your party. Your business is not to show arrogance to your party.“Yes, the children brought you to be chairman of the party. The children brought you from the gutter to make you chairman.“Ayu, you were impeached as senate president. Ayu, you were sacked by Obasanjo in his administration. Arrogance cannot take you anywhere. Now, we have seen that you don’t want the party to win the election. We will help you.”Wike said this while speaking at the commissioning of the road project at Omerelu in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers.
