Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde demands the resignation of Ayu
The governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has asked for the resignation of the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, in order for the people of the South to have a sense of belonging in the party.
Makinde made this request during a meeting of South-West PDP stakeholders with the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The Oyo State Governor, along with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has been battling the PDP over the party’s National Chairman and presidential candidate, both of whom are from the North.
In his welcoming message, he did, however, refer to Atiku as “the incoming President of Nigeria in 2023.”
Makinde’s assessment of Atiku drew a round of applause from the PDP stakeholders in attendance meeting.
He said, “The truth is that we do not have any issue either with our party or our candidate. If there are challenges they must be tabled.
“We want our people to listen to us, and we are meant to offer them hope.
Our candidate is a unifier who represents our party’s desire to save Nigeria.
He desires to reform Nigeria.
We are now deeply divided as a result of the All Progressives Congress’ eight years in power.
The problem is that we must put our words into action.
We must first unite the PDP if we wish to unite Nigeria.
“We must be prepared to make the PDP more inclusive if we want to reorganize Nigeria.
Do we possess the ability?
The answer is an unequivocal yes.
The South-West PDP is requesting that the PDP’s National Working Committee be reorganized, according to their statement.
“We are requesting that the National Chairman resign in order to properly include the South.
The message is that.
