PDP Crisis: Wike dismisses Jibrin’s resignation, insists on Ayu’s step down


By Aminu Kutama

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has on Thursday insisted that Iyorchia Ayu must step down as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party for reconciliation to reign.

Wike said the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, told him in person when he won the May presidential primary that Ayu must vacate his position as party chairman.

The governor stated this when he commissioned the Ahoada Campus of the Rivers State University in the Ahoada East Local Government Area of the state on Thursday.

Wike was at the occasion with his colleague and ally, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.

The governor said the resignation of Walid Jibril as the Board of Trustees chairman won’t stop his demand for Ayu’s removal.

According to Wike, the issue at hand is that of justice and fairness, and having produced the presidential candidate of the party, the north should not also hold on to the chairmanship of the party.
