Ondo PDP Snubs Mimiko, Backs Ayu – News & Analysis

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State has snubbed moves by its leader, former Governor Olusegun Mimiko, to see to the removal of National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.

It said it was committed to victory at the general elections in 2023.

Mimiko is among the PDP leaders backing the demand of River Governor, Nyesom Wike, that Ayu must resign.

Mimiko is also being touted as possible replacement of Ayu from the Southwest region.

The Ondo PDP, in statement by its spokesman, Kennedy Peretei, said it aligned with the resolutions reached at the party’s 97th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting which passed a vote of confidence on Senator Ayu.

According to the statement, “We unconditionally support the presidential candidate of our party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who possesses the experience and capacity to lead Nigeria to the destination of our dreams.

“Our focus and priority at this critical time is victory at the polls. And we shall commit all our energies to ensuring victory.

“Since the coming of the All Progressives Congress (APC) entered the saddle in 2015, Nigeria has been on a free fall. We moved from the biggest economy in Africa to World capital of poverty. As a nation, we are struggling for space for a ranking in failed states with Afghanistan and Syria under President Muhammad Buhari.

“Our party is determined to end the misrule of APC, rescue and redirect our country on the path of recovery and prosperity.”
