Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated that the PDP is for all of Nigeria, not just a particular region, amidst the crisis that is roiling the party.
Making this statement during the presidential campaign for Atiku Abubakar, he in front of a sizable gathering of party members in Ilorin Metropolitan Square in Kwara State on Thursday, insisted that PDP is one big family.
“Let me tell you that PDP is one big united family which includes all the whole of Kwara State. We are on our way back to victory, PDP has come back to rescue this country and put it back on the path of development for every family, for every young man, for every old person,” He said.
“We are a party for all; we are not a party for only one part of the country. That is why we selected a unifier, somebody who will bring everybody on board and make sure that we rebuild this country,” he added.
Five governors of the party led by Nyesom Wike of Rivers have sought Ayu’s resignation in order to back Atiku’s bid for the presidency in 2023, but the politician from Benue has vowed that he won’t resign till the end of his four-year tenure.
