The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyorcha Ayu has made it clear that he has no intention of resigning from his position.
In a statement today, August 15, through his special assistant on communication and strategy, Simon Imobo-Tswam, Senator Ayu said that he intends to serve out the four-year mandate given to him by the PDP.
“The PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyiochia Ayu, has not resigned and has no plan of resigning. For clarity and emphasis, he was elected for a tenure of four years.”
The position of the PDP chairman came against the backdrop of the crisis rocking the main opposition party over the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the party’s 2023 presidential candidate and the subsequent emergence of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
The camp of Rivers State Governor, Nyeson Wike has demanded his resignation as part of the solutions to the crisis affecting the PDP. Wike is alleged to have insisted that Ayu should resign to address the issue of having the party’s national chairman and its presidential candidate coming from the same Northern region.
