PDP publicity secretaries pledge support for Ayu, urged leaders to respect party’s constitution


In what appears to be a festering crack in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West, the spokespersons of the party in the zone have distanced themselves from the call by the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde for the resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu.

The Publicity Secretaries of the PDP in Ogun, Ondo, Lagos and Ekiti said there was no justification for the resignation of the National Chairman.

Makinde, the only PDP governor in the South-West, had called for the removal of Ayu, ditto a former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Bode George who argues that both the Presidential candidate and the National Chairman cannot come from the same zone.

But the South-West spokesmen who met in Lagos dissociated themselves from the call for Ayu’s resignation.

They said the National Chairman cannot resign at this critical moment the campaign is about to kick off, adding  that while the concerns of some of the leaders in the South-West are “deeply appreciated”, the attention should be focused on rallying members of the party to support all its candidates vying for various positions.
