Ex-federal lawmakers beg Wike, Makinde, others to leave Ayu alone

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders have been urged to reconsider their demands for the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, by former members of the National Assembly from the party’s South-West zone.

Yemi Arokodare, the interim coordinator of the PDP South-West Forum of Former Parliamentarians, made the request in a statement on Sunday. He said it was required so that the party could get its house in order before the general elections in 2023.

The call for the sack of Ayu is being pushed by some governors in the party, among whom are Nyesome Wike of Rivers and Seyi Makinde of Oyo.

“Party members across the region should shelve all personal interests and work tirelessly for the success of the party in 2023 general elections, in spite of the lingering leadership crisis,” the statement reads in part.

“We wish to appeal to all the South-West Party leaders to tarry a bit on their request that the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, should step down as part of measures to address the lingering crisis in the party.

“This may further cause imbalance and instability within the party if allowed to linger.

“Beyond this, we feel very strongly that what is important now is to work like we did in Osun State and win the next presidential, National Assembly, gubernatorial and state assembly elections

“Our concerns, for now, should be how to win the coming polls. Then, other things will follow,” the former Parliamentarians said.
