Atiku Speaks On Ayu Removal.
It became obvious that the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is far from abating as the call for its national chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, to resign resonated yesterday at the South-West PDP stakeholders meeting.
The push for Ayu’s removal got a fresh life of its own yesterday when Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, insisted that Ayu must resign as PDP national chairman.
In response, presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, said Ayu can only be removed through the amendment of the party’s constitution.
Speaking in Ibadan, Oyo State, during the South West PDP stakeholders meeting, the former vice president maintained that the resignation of Ayu was achievable only if the party’s constitution was amended.
You’re Sleeping Mr. President, PDP chief replies Buhari.
Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, Mr. Funkekeme Solomon, has dismissed President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim of having performed “extremely well,” saying that he had been a “sleeping president” under whose watch Nigeria has degenerated on all indices of development.
Speaking on a radio programme in Asaba, yesterday, Solomon insisted: “The President’s self-assessment shows he is not aware of the state of the country; that his fellow Nigerians are living in abject poverty and deprivation inflicted by his leadership.”
