Sam Ohuabunwa, a former PDP presidential aspirant has claimed that the only solution to the crisis that is currently rocking the party is for Iyorchia Ayu, the party’ s National Chairman, to step down from his position.
According to Ohuabunwa, the resignation of Walid Jibrin as chairman of the party’ s Board of Trustees was not enough to satisfy Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and his allies.
Recall that Jibrin tendered his resignation last week Thursday, during the 97th meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC), which took place at the party’ s national secretariat in Abuja.
As a result of Jibrin’ s decision to step down, Adolphus Wabara, who had previously served as President of the Senate, has taken over as Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees.
On the other hand, rumors were circulating that Jibrin’ s resignation was part of a plan to appease aggrieved southern members who were demanding that Ayu be removed from her position.
Ohuabunwa stated in an interview with The Punch that the resignation of Jibrin was not enough to satisfy the angry members of the party in the Southern region.
The PDP Chieftain went on to say that the South is looking for inclusiveness, equity, and fair play, adding that anything less than these factors will not be tolerated.
