Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, has said his agreement with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, is that the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, will resign.
Wike said the only reason he is fighting Ayu and Atiku is that they failed to honor the gentleman’s agreement between the three of them, Channels Television reported.
The governor revealed that the former vice president gave him his words in person that Ayu won the primary and that since he won the party’s primary in May, Ayu must vacate his position as chairman of the party.
Wike also rejected the resignation of the BoT chairman of the PDP, Walid Jibrin, adding that his resignation would not stop his demand for the removal of Ayu.
According to Wike, the issue at hand is that of justice and fairness, saying having produced the party’s presidential candidate, the north should not also hold on to the party’s chairmanship.
“This fight we will fight it to the end,” the governor spoke when he commissioned the Ahoada Campus of the Rivers State University in the Ahoada East Local Government Area of the state.
Wike was at the occasion alongside his ally, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
