Ibekimi Oriamaja Reports
On Wednesday, the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, stated that the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, must be done in accordance with the party’s constitution, rules, regulations, and practice.
“We cannot do anything outside our constitution unless it is amended,” Atiku stated. We are powerless to act unless the laws are changed.
“Ayu must review our constitution, rules, regulations, and practices; otherwise, we will be unable to provide the kind of leadership that Nigerians desire.”
“It is possible, it is attainable; we have done it before and have begun to do it again.”
Atiku made the announcement during the PDP Southwest stakeholders meeting, which was held at the popular Theophilus Ogunlesi Hall, University Teaching Hospital, UCH, Ibadan.
As a result, Atiku urged PDP members not to let the issue distract them from working hard to win the next general election.
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state had earlier conveyed the region’s message to the party’s presidential candidate, stating that Ayu must resign to allow for fairness and equity.
He stated that there were structural issues in the party that needed to be addressed before the 2023 election.
“If we want to unite Nigeria, we must first unite the PDP.” If we want a government of national unity, the PDP must reflect that. If we want to restructure Nigeria, we must first restructure the PDP.
“Our Presidential candidate is from the Northeast, our National Chairman is from the North Central, and the Director General of the Atiku campaign is from the South.”
We can’t do anything unless our constitution is amended, and we can’t do anything unless the laws are amended. Ayu must review our constitution, rules, regulations, and practices; otherwise, we will be unable to provide the kind of leadership that Nigerians desire. It is possible, it is attainable; we have done it before and have begun to do it again.” He proposed.
Speaking on behalf of the National Chairman, the PDP Deputy National Chairman, North, Umar Damagum, urged members to commit to the party’s victory in the upcoming elections.
He stated that the location of the meeting was deliberate because Ibadan was the political capital of Southwest Nigeria and Nigeria in general.
In the entourage of the presidential candidate of the party are; Governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Bala Mohammed, Osun State Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, PDP governorship candidates, ex Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, Ex Osun State governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Ex Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja and a host of others.
