The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyorchia Ayu has described those asking him to resign as children who were not around when the party was formed.
In an interview with BBC Hausa Service today, August 31, Ayu said that he is unbothered by those calling for his resignation, adding that they were nowhere to be found when they struggled to form the party.
“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.”
“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 destabilize our party,” he said.
It is on record that the camp of Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has been demanding Ayu’s resignation as one of the conditions that have to be fulfilled to resolve the post-presidential primaries crisis rocking the main opposition party.
