FCT, Abuja – About 51 Peoples Democratic Leaders (PDP’s) chiefs assembled on Sunday, July 31, to determine the emergency in the biggest resistance in Nigeria.
Premium Times announced that the gathering demanded that the public administrator of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, should resign from his job and permit someone else from the south of Nigeria to have his spot.
Wike has PDP pioneers in Abuja
The Rivers state lead representative Nyesom Wike facilitated the gathering at the lead representative’s cabin in Abuja.
It was revealed that most of those in attendance supported the Rivers state governor prior to the presidential primary, in which the former vice president Atiku Abubakar won.
Speaking to journalists after the meeting, a member of the PDP’s Board of Trustees, Jerry Gana, said the group was meeting for the first time to review the primary and other developments in the PDP ahead of the 2023 elections.
PDP pioneers to request Ayu’s abdication as public administrator
Gana said the gathering have taken a few choices yet declined to educate columnists concerning them.
Notwithstanding, various insiders affirmed that the gathering thought widely on the issue among Wike and Atiku over his decision of running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state.
Wike and Atiku have not been seen together since the last option reported his running mate. On Friday, July 29, the Rivers state lead representative blamed Atiku for lying and involving a few heads of the party as “assault canines” against him.
Why Atiku’s constitution of campaign organisation is delayed
Sources have confirmed that the crisis is delaying Atiku’s decision to form his campaign organisation.
The leaders said that Ayu’s resignation would be their precondition for meeting with Atiku if they had any role to play in the 2023 presidential election for the party.
The 51 leaders who attended the meeting included 5 governors and 7 former governors of the party.

A former Ekiti governor, Ayo Fayose, was also said to have been absent for health reasons.
