Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has declared support for the steps taken by PDP Ward officials in Igyorov , Benue state which had them getting PDP National Chairman, former senator Iyorchia Ayu suspended from the party .
Pulsenews learned that Wike, who disclosed this while appearing on Channels TV’s political programme on Sunday, added that Ayu would eventually get removed from office.
Ayu’s suspension was announced by the Ward Executives of the party in Igyorov Ward , Gboko Local Government , LGA, Benue state on Sunday.
The Ward Secretary, Mr. Vangeryina Dooyum , who presided over the press conference organized by the Ward exco, had noted that Ayu was suspended by the Executive for anti- party activities.
‘I am in support of Ayu’s suspension. In fact, if he (Ayu) had left before now, they would have said that was why the PDP failed in the general election.
First of all, if you are a member of the party will you be happy with the way the party is today?
It is only in this country that you see someone who has failed woefully, and without any conscience, would still like to occupy the position.
In advanced countries and (if) you are the head of the party, and you had such a colossal failure. You do not need anybody to tell you to throw in the towel.
So those in his ward from Benue are angry.
They were angry before now? Ayu ought to have left that office.
People were saying we were pushing for Ayu to leave and that we had a hidden agenda to make PDP fail.
Ayu remained and PDP didn’t win. You lost your unit as National Chairman. You lost your ward, as National Chairman. You lost your Local government.
As National Chairman of the party, not only did you take a distant third in the presidential election, you also lost in the state gubernatorial election’ he said.
Wike also said stakeholders who have the party’s interest at heart, will not look the other way while it gets destroyed in the hands of individuals who have nothing attached to the party.
He added that no one can take directives from a politician who could not deliver his ward and could not ensure that the party was successful at his local government and state levels.
‘What then is your contribution? he asked?
Wike is the leader of the G5 governors, who had not only refused to endorse Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s candidacy but did not also campaign for him . They had also called for Ayu’s removal as PDP National Chairman.
