Nothing Will Stop PDP From Taking Over Power From APC In 2023 - Iyorchia Ayu

Seyi Makinde Wants Ayu To Step Down As PDP National Chairman

This, he said is for the people of South to have a sense of belonging in the party.

Makinde made the call at the South-West PDP stakeholders meeting with the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.

With his call, he now joins Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, former national deputy chairman of the party and Bode George who have been tackling the PDP over the National Chairman of the party and the presidential candidate who are are from the North.

Atiku comes from Adamawa (North East) while Ayu hails from Benue (North Central).

In an address of welcome, Makinde described Atiku as “the incoming President of Nigeria in 2023.”

He said, “The truth is that we do not have any issue either with our party or our candidate. If there are challenges they must be tabled.

“We are supposed to give hope to our people, we want them to listen to us.

“Our party wants to rescue Nigeria and our candidate is a unifier. He wants to restructure Nigeria

“Eight years of the All Progressives Congress have left us sharply divided. The issue is we must practice what we preach. If we want to unify Nigeria, we must unify the PDP first.

“If we want to restructure Nigeria, we must have the willingness to bring inclusivity to the PDP. Do we have the capacity? The answer is resounding yes.

“The message from the South-West PDP is the South-West is asking that the National Working Committee of the PDP should be restructured.

“We are asking the National Chairman to step down so that the South will be fully included. That is the message.”

Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily had reported that the National Executive Committee (NEC) had passed a vote of confidence on the Ayu-led PDP.
