Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde today in a closed-door meeting with Atiku has insisted that Iyorcha Ayu must go, ENigeria reports.
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State called for the immediate resignation of of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, if the people of the South to feel a sense of belonging in the party.
At the South-West PDP stakeholders meeting with the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Makinde bared his mind on the lingering issue which has created a rancho in the party.
The PDP’s national chairman and presidential candidate, both of whom are from the North, have come under fire from the governors of Oyo and Rivers states, respectively.
However, in his welcome address, he described Atiku as “the incoming President of Nigeria in 2023.”
The PDP participants present at the gathering loudly applauded Makinde’s assessment of Atiku.
The truth is that neither our candidate nor our party are the subject of any contention, he declared. But there are challenges must be brought to the table.
“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.”
