Former Senator Segun Baju has claimed that PDP’s national chairman — Dr Iyorchia Ayu, will play a huge part in the victory of Atiku Abubakar, the party’s Presidential candidate.
In a statement made available to the media on Saturday, he said this and added that any request for Ayu to resign would be the incorrect course of action.
The statement partly read, “The deft management of the party by Dr Iyorchia Ayu since being elected as chairman in October 2021 has set in motion a chain of reaction that will culminate in the election of the party’s flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, as Nigerian president in early 2023.
All party faithful must mobilise across the country as Nigerians are determined to replace the current government that has brought misery and calamity to millions of Nigerians. Since 2015, every economic and social indicator has been, negative and Nigerians have continued to wallow in abject poverty, insecurity, and social disruption to daily life.
“Any call for Dr lyorchia Ayu to step down as chairman is a step in the wrong direction. You do not change a winning team in the midst of a battle. Iyorchia Ayu is set to redeem the PDP and rescue Nigeria from retrogression. Once the PDP Federal government is installed in Abuja 2023, Dr Ayu will do the right thing.”
