People calling for my resignation were children when we formed PDP- Ayu

Dr Iyorchia Ayu, National Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday, said all those calling for his resignation are children, who were not mature when PDP was formed.

Governor Wike and Former Vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s friendship went soar when Atiku defeated Wike in the just concluded PDP Presidential primary. The soaring even got tasteless when Governor Okowa was appointed as vice president.

However, the camp of Governor Nyesom Wike has given Ayu’s resignation as one of the conditions that have to be fulfilled for peace in the party.

Responding to his resignation call as a condition for Wike’s reconciliation, Ayu while speaking with BBC Hausa service, monitored in Kaduna on Wednesday, said he was not bothered by the call for his resignation, adding that he was voted as PDP Chairman for a four-year tenure and he was 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 offence 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 destabilize our party,” he further added.
