PDP Crisis: Wike Speaks On Party’s Situation On Friday
  • PublishedSeptember 22, 2022

Governor of Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, has announced a plan to speak on the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday.

Governor Wike will be speaking on the situation of things with the party ahead of the start of campaigns next week.

The Governor said he will also shed more light on the reason his camp pulled out of the presidential Campaign Council of the party for the 2023 general elections.

As reported yesterday, members of the Wike camp had pulled out of the party’s campaign council and vowed not to partake in Atiku’s campaign activities pending the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.

Wike’s camp made the decisions at a strategic meeting held in Port Harcourt in the early hours of Wednesday.

The Camp decided to hold the meeting following the vote of confidence passed on Ayu as the party’s national chairman by the National Executive Committee (NEC) despite their demand for his resignation.

In a resolution read by a former PDP Deputy National Chairman, Bode George, Wike camp insisted that its members will not work with Atiku until Ayu resigns and allows an acting Chairman from the South to lead the party.

According to George, the Wike camp stated that their position was not negotiable as the continued stay of Ayu as party’s chairman undermines the unity and constitution of the party.

He said, “Senator Iyorchia Ayu must resign as the National Chairman of the party for an acting Chairman of the Southern Nigerian extraction to emerge and lead the party on the national campaign.

“Consequently, we resolve not to participate in the campaign council in whatever capacity until the resignation of Dr. Iyorchia Ayu”
