Nyesom Wike has said the fight with the embattled national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, just got underway.
The Rivers state governor made the statement during the inauguration of the remodelled Community Secondary School in Okoro-nu-Odo, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state on Monday, March 27, 2023.
Ayu was suspended by his ward executives in Benue state and during the inauguration, Wike warned other PDP stakeholders against siding with the national chairman.
His words: “Those of you who are fighting that they have suspended him, you have not seen anything yet. The fight has started. Ayu, the fight has just started.
“If you know him, those of you who are close to him, tell him, Iyorchia Ayu, the fight has just started.”
Wike further stated that Ayu should not be allowed to preside over the party after failing to win his polling unit, ward, local government or state during the last general elections
He added: “Ask them, those who want to be chairman of this party (PDP), what do you have to give to the party now? Presidential election; you lost in your unit, lost in your ward, lost in your local government and lost in your State. Which party will you preside over now?”
