Wike meets PDP stakeholders in Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike called a meeting with Peoples Democratic Party stakeholders in the state on Thursday.

The meeting will take place in the Banquet Hall of Government House in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The meeting was called in response to rising calls for the PDP’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to resign and be replaced by a southerner.

Wike and his allies including Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, ex-governor Ayo Fayose, and Jonah Jang, amongst others had on Wednesday morning pulled out of the campaign council of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, insisting that Ayu must go.

The chieftains argued that the Atiku and Ayu, both northerners, cannot hold the two most prominent offices in the party simultaneously, and noted that Ayu should fulfill his promise to step down with the emergence of a northern presidential candidate.
