Names Of PDP Governors Backing Atiku, Ayu Revealed
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the battle for leadership in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has seen governors elected on the platform of the party divided.
Some PDP governors at different times had called for the removal of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu .
The governors insisted on Ayu’s resignation from office as its demand to support the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The likes of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed and Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom on several occasions have supported the call for Ayu to step down from office.
This is coming despite the stand by the camp of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku that Ayu would remain in office.
Some governors in the party have decided to line up behind the former vice president and others behind the party’s national chairman.
According to a source that spoke with The Guardian, governors in support of Atiku and Ayu’s continuous leadership are, Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel, Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal and Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri.
The Governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku, however, has not taken a stand on the camp he belongs to as the party prepares for the 2023 general elections.
The camp of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku has insisted on the party’s National Chairman, Ayu remaining in office.
The spokesman of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, Dino Melaye, while speaking on the call for Ayu’s resignation, said the party chairman would remain in office.
He further stated that Ayu would lead the party until Atiku emerge as president in 2023.
