Amid the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says one of the reasons why Senator Iyorchia Ayu has been reluctant to resign as the National Chairman of the party is because he wants to continue to oversee the party’s finances ‘despite having failed to give account of how party primaries funds were expended’.
Newsbreak.ng reports that the Rivers State governor said this in Port Harcourt on Sunday during a media parley.
“Why does he not want to resign? He is hoping that Nigerians will donate money to the party so he will superintendent over that money,” Wike said.
“He has already finished the one of N11 billion from party’s primaries. Account for it, he says it is in the account. Show the public the account. Print out the statement of account of PDP and let the world see how the N11 billion was expended.
“And this is the party that all of us have laboured to takeover power from the ruling party that we said has done badly. And then the national chairman will open his mouth to talk about stopping contestants. Ayu shouldn’t say so. He tried it in Rivers State. He came to manipulate and try to put some gubernational aspirants, but he saw the result. We dealt with him.”
