Happening now  PDP Crisis : Northern youths group Seeks Ayu’s resignation 

Sequel to the outburst of the Rivers State governor, Nyesome Wike where he accused  the national chairman of the party ,Dr Iyorchia Ayu of corruption ,a group of youths in the North have demanded the resignation of the Chairman.

Wike,during a media chat on Friday had defended his call for Ayu’s resignation and slammed him for the role he played in the  PDP crisis,

At peaceful protest  staged  in Kaduna State today  the youths  demanded the immediate resignation Iyorchia Ayu.
Armed with placards with various inscriptions, the group under the aegis of Northern PDP Youth,  took their protest to the state PDP Secretariat in Kaduna

Chairman, Northern PDP Youth  Shehu Isah while addressing the crowd insisted Ayu must step down to pave way for a Southerner to emerge as Chairman of the PDP.

The demand, according to him, is in the interest of peace, equity, and fairness.

He said the continued stay of Senator Ayu in office could jeopardise the success of the party in the 2023 general elections.

“As things stand, Nigerians need PDP, Nigerians want PDP. But with this internal crisis, I don’t think we will succeed. That is why we are calling on Mr Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP National Chairman, to fulfil his promise to resign,” he said, adding that Ayu promised during the National Convention that if a northern candidate wins the party’s ticket, he would resign.

“But now, almost six months after the convention, Ayu remains as PDP National Chairman, which is injustice. We are calling on the PDP NEC (National Executive Council), PDP BOT (Board of Trustees), PDP Caucus, (and) PDP NWC to do justice for all.”

Isah said the protesting youth were 100 percent in support of the PDP Presidential Candidate Atiku Abubakar for the 2023 presidential election. They were, however, concerned that if the internal crisis in the party is not resolved, it would hurt his chances, hence their action.
