Former deputy national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has asked the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to tell the party’s national chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu to resign.
Gatekeepers News reports that the PDP chieftain is one of the leaders in the group calling for Ayu’s resignation.
According to him, a divided house (party) cannot win the 2023 election, as he stressed that their demand was not a difficult one to meet.
“There are six top positions in the country as defined by the founding fathers. The number one position is president; number two position is Vice President; number three is position is Senate president; number four position is speaker of the federal house; number five position is secretary to government and number six position is the national chairman,” the PDP chief and Board of Trustees (PDP) said when he featured on the Channels TV programme, Politics Today.
“Number one and number six cannot be from the same area. In the interest of the future generations of this country, in the interest of so many other Nigerians who are looking for fairness, justice, and equity, why can’t we?
“The onus is on our presidential candidate to talk to Ayu in the interest of balancing and equity, let him just drop. How can we? Just one person creating imbroglio in the party. Why? l just can’t understand it. It is excruciatingly painful to me to see this massive party that our founding fathers’ slaves so hard to ensure that we bring about a balancing.”
