PDP ‘Children’ Will Teach Ayu Lesson, Bode George Backs Wike

Governor Wike, at the inauguration of Omerelu internal roads in the Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state took a swipe at the PDP national chairman Iyorchia Ayu. 

Ayu, had in an interview BBC Hausa Service on Tuesday  dismissed the wave for his resignation and described Wike and his loyalists youngsters who lacked the knowledge about how the party was formed.

 Ayu said, “I didn’t commit any offence, I’m only reforming the party so I’m not bothered with all the noises. I know I’m doing my work and I didn’t steal any money so I see no reason for all these talks. When we started PDP, these children were not around. They are children who do not know why we formed the party. We will not allow any individual to destabilize our party.”

Governor Wike at the inauguration of  Omerelu internal roads  by a former South-West Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Chief Olabode George,  said Ayu could jeopardise the party’s fortunes in the 2023 elections. Wike said, “Dr Ayu said we are children. Yes, the children brought you to be chairman of the party.  The children brought you from the gutter and made you chairman. Ayu, you were impeached as Senate president. “Ayu was sacked by (ex-president Olusegun) Obasanjo in his administration two times. Arrogance cannot take you anywhere. Now, we have seen that you don’t want the party to win the election, we’ll help you.”

“A man who is inconsistent and ran away from the party, telling those of us who spent our time, sleepless nights to make sure this party does not go down, we are children.

“Now, you have the temerity, the audacity to tell us we are children.” “As you make your bed, so you will lie on it. I’ve been quiet thinking that we will reconcile. Now that you have brought in arrogance to say you were elected, where did you campaign? Show me where your poster was anywhere in this state,’’ he challenged Ayu.

Chief Bode George in his statement said, “Party members from the South are already feeling alienated. PDP is not a private company. So, before we start the presidential campaign at the end of this month, the national chairman must go to the South.

“That is what Governor Wike is saying and as a life member of the Board of Trustees of our party, I support this position 100 per cent.
