Mohammed O. Taoheed reports,
Iyorchia Ayu, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has stated that those calling for his resignation are “children”.
Track News Nigeria reports that the camp of Nyesom Wike, the incumbent Governor of Rivers State, is insisting on Ayu’s resignation as a demand for supporting Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the party.
BUT, speaking in a recent interview on BBC News Hausa, the Benue-born politician said he had no offence to warrant being asked to leave the office.
According to him: “I was voted as PDP Chairman for a four-year tenure and I’m yet to complete a year. Atiku’s victory doesn’t affect the Chairman’s position. I won my election based on our party’s constitution,” he said.
“I didn’t commit any offense I’m only reforming the party so I’m not bothered with all the noises.
“I know I’m doing my work and I didn’t steal any money so I see no reason for all these talks.
“When we started PDP, these children were not around.
“They are children who do not know why we formed the party.
“We will not allow any individual to destabilise our party.”
