Northern PDP Elders Back Ayu

ELDERS of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the northern part of the country rose from a meeting in Kaduna on Friday with a resolution to give its backing to Senator Iyorchia Ayu, to continue as the national chairman of the party.

A section of PDP members, especially in the South, has been calling for Ayu’s resignation to pave way for a chairman of Southern extraction to take over since the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is from the North.

Rising from a stakeholder meeting in Kaduna on Friday, the chairman of the PDP elders group, Dr Nasiru Aliyu Sadauki, contended that in order to give peace a chance, there was the need for all stakeholders to sheathe their swords for PDP to progress and unite ahead of the inauguration of the Atiku/Okowa campaign council.
