The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) problem will be discussed by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Friday.
In advance of the start of the elections next week, Governor Wike will discuss the state of the biggest opposition party, according to Channels Television.
The governor promised to clarify why his camp left the party’s presidential Campaign Council ahead of the general elections in 2023.
Recall that supporters of Wike quit the party’s campaign council and pledged not to participate in Atiku’s activities unless the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, resigned.
According to information obtained by Anaedoonline.ng, the Wike camp made the decisions during a strategic meeting that took place in Port Harcourt early on Wednesday.
According to information obtained, the Wike Camp decided to hold the meeting after the National Executive Committee (NEC) gave Ayu a vote of confidence in his ability to continue serving as the party’s national chairman despite their demand that he leave.
The Wike camp claimed that its members would not cooperate with Atiku until Ayu resigned and allowed an acting Chairman from the South to lead the party in a resolution read by a former PDP Deputy National Chairman named Bode George.
According to George, the Wike camp insisted that their stance was unabudgetable because Ayu’s prolonged role as the party’s chairman threatened the organization’s unity and fundamental principles.
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”.
