Wike: We Will Stay Back Fight for Equity in PDP
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, whose push back against alleged betrayal by the party’s leadership during its presidential nomination is at the heart of the PDP crisis, said he would not leave PDP on account of his grievances but stay back to fight and demand equity.
Nonetheless, spokesperson of the PDP presidential campaign, Mr Charles Aniagwu, said the party’s presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, was still open to dialogue with Wike and his group.
Meanwhile, the South-west Forum of PDP Shareholders for Justice, yesterday, said the PDP national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, would become the hero of the party’s journey to 2023 if he voluntarily resigned in the collective interest.
Wike and his associates have asked Ayu to resign in order to create some balance of power in the party between the southern and northern parts of the country
Wike said no matter the disagreement with the leadership of the party, he would stay back to fight for unity, inclusivity, equity and peace in the PDP.
