2023: ‘No Sensible Member Will Want Ayu To Resign’ – Northern PDP Elders

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Northern Elders have rejected calls for Senator Iyorchia Ayu to resign as the party’s national chairman and insisted that he will continue in that role.

According to, the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, and some of his allies have demanded that Ayu be fired. They have argued that the PDP cannot produce a presidential candidate and national chairman from the same area.

Friday’s meeting was held in Kaduna, and Dr. Nasiru Aliyu Sadauki, the head of the PDP elders group, stated the region would support Ayu’s continued leadership of the party.

In order for PDP to advance and come together in advance of the inauguration of the Atiku/Okowa campaign council, he highlighted that all stakeholders needed to put their differences aside.


Sadauki urged PDP leaders to address significant problems with the economy, insecurity, poverty, educational crisis, and other concerns that are endangering Nigeria’s unity and cohesion.

He said: “There are issues on the ground that need leaders to make sacrifices, offer solutions and relief to the public. No sensible party supporter will promote and seek Ayu’s exit in this time of expected cooperation, unity, and understanding in the party.

“Nigerians are tired of such media display of arrogance by a certain group of political elites in the country. Let us face issues and rebuke or disregard any political class that is more interested in seeming public sympathy rather than act to help rebuild the nation.

PDP Crisis: ‘South-West Behind Gov Wike, Atiku, Ayu Turning PDP To Northern Party’

“We wake up daily with news of unpleasant happenings in the country especially the killing, maiming and kidnapping of our fellow Nigerians including women and children which the All Progressives Congress (APC)- led government has failed to nip in the bud.

“To our surprise, our party is talking about “Ayu must go” and “South will not agree” which are issues that could be resolved amicably behind the curtains.”

The turmoil roiling the party, according to the PDP Northern Elders Chairman, is meant to undo all of the good and positive changes made by the Ayu-led National Working Committee (NWC).


He asserts that those who are fueling the flames of the PDP’s division, cohesion, and advancement are doing so in order to sow doubt about the APC among Nigerians (APC).

“We call on PDP supporters within and outside the country to unite and support the leadership of the party under Dr Iyorchia Ayu to collectively rescue and rebuild our country from the ruins of the APC.


“The inability of APC-led government to resolve the lingering issue of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) alone is enough to see the reason for all of us to work together with the party leadership to ensure APC is sent packing in 2023.

“We, however, advise the Ayu-led National Executive Council (NEC) to immediately swing into action to unite the party before the commencement of the campaigns to ensure we offer greater hope for the survival of Nigeria ahead of the 2023 elections,” he said.
