Demands for Ayu’s removal unrealistic – Atiku’s campaign spokesman

New demands from members of the People’s Democratic Party, including Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, for the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, have been rendered obsolete by the events and should not be the subject of discussion, spokesman for the campaign organization Atiku Abubakar, Charles Aniagwu said on Wednesday.

According to him, since PDP has a law, it should be followed and not thrown away as if it were a party that is not governed by the law.

So said Aniagwu, who is also Delta State Commissioner for Information, in an interview with The PUNCH.

He answered questions about the meeting between Atiku and Makinde, where the governor pushed for Ayu’s resignation, even though the National Executive Committee passed a vote of confidence on him.

Aniagwu was also asked why PDP presidential candidate Atiku did not respond to Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike’s demand for Ayu’s departure, more than two weeks he had promised to act in that regard.

He said: “I am confident that the party’s NEC has resolved these issues, especially within the provisions of the law. And a statement was previously issued in which the presidential candidate also raised some of those issues.

“We have a law that cannot be thrown away and are starting to pretend we are not a party governed by the law.

“It should also be said that Makinde recognized him (Atiku) as the party’s presidential candidate and he said by the grace of God, the next president of Nigeria.

“Being Nigeria’s president shows that Makinde will work for him. That’s the implication.

‘Ayu’s departure has been overtaken by events. It’s something that’s already been discussed.”
