Sacked PDP National Chairman Dr. Iyiorcha Ayu would further destabilize the main opposition party ahead of the 2023 general elections, according to Charles Aniagwu, a spokesman for Atiku Abubakar’s presidential campaign organization.
Aniagwu said this on Saturday on a television program in Asaba while explaining the PDP’s decision to look at alternative solutions to its current dilemma.
Aniagwu claimed that the PDP was reexamining the issues in light of what was permitted by the party’s bylaws.
He claimed that the events following the National Executive Committee’s vote of confidence have eclipsed the idea that Ayu should resign (NEC).
He said, “Now if you decide to bring these two positions [National Chairman and the Deputy National Chairman] to the South, have you also made arrangements to take the National Secretary to the North?
“Because of these legal impediments, the party, after examining it, felt that given the time, which is just about six months to the general elections, it may likely snowball into some form of crisis within the party.
“The party felt that if we proceeded to make these changes, there is the tendency that we could dive into a crisis worse than the one we are seeing at the moment.
“The leadership of the party is intelligent enough and I’m happy that Governor Nyesom Wike and other leaders appreciate the need for the party to move as a whole into the 2023 general elections.”
