‘Nigerians Won’t Trust Us’ If Ayu Is Sacked – Atiku To Makinde

By Adadainfo

Dr Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, cannot be removed from office until PDP’s constitution is amended.

Chief Atiku Abubakar, the presisential candidate of the party, told South-West stakeholders of the party in Ibadan at the end of a meeting he held with them Wednesday.

Gov Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, on behalf of leaders of the party from the region, had demanded the sack of Ayu to pave way for the emergence of a southerner as the national chairman of the party, so that both the party’s presidential candidate and the chairman will not come from the North.

Atiku responded that, “The Peoples Democratic Party is the oldest political party in Nigeria since the return of democracy and even before then. It has laid-down rules and regulations.

“I have been a member of the party since when it was formed. I am still a member of the party up to the point of what it has grown to become.

“What Governor Makinde is asking for is possible only when we have amended our party’s constitution. As things stand today, no single individual has the power to tamper with the NWC of the party. Doing so will be illegal and it will be against our rules in the party.

“Nigerians will not trust us to govern by the tenets of rule of law if we take such arbitrary action against our own party.”
