…Says PDP chairman not relevant
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has mocked the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, saying he has brought no value to the party, following the outcome of the just-concluded general elections.
Wike said Ayu lost his polling unit, his ward and senatorial district in Benue State and should not be hanging on the successes of others to crave relevance as the chairman of the party.
He said unlike Ayu, Babangida Aliyu and other attack dogs, he delivered for the PDP in Rivers winning all senatorial seats, the House of Assembly seats and 90 per cent of the national assembly elections.
He said, “Rivers is PDP. The governorship and National Assembly members are PDP. Ayu lost his polling unit. I won three senatorial seats, 32 house of Assembly seats. He didn’t get anything.
“Jigawa did not win presidential election. Babangida Aliyu did not win. So who is the betrayer? We won to make sure PDP exist. Of what relevance is he as national chairman? He couldn’t deliver his polling unit.
“I am a peacemaker. All I want is equity and fairness. I am not a troublemaker. PDP should be careful. There are those who don’t want PDP to survive. They called us small boys.
“Mention one state that PDP did what Rivers State did. who love PDP more? I am saying the NWC must do the right thing. Why do you want to use another zone to remain as a national chairman. I cannot leave this party. Ayu left and came back”, Wike added.
