A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Delta State chapter, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare, has said the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike's demand for the resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, is not outrageous.
Muoboghare, disclosed this while answering questions as regards the ongoing crisis in the party, in Asaba, on Wednesday.
He said; “The party’s national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, has become the subject of contention.’’
“Wike said the National championship should go to any political region in the South, is that asking for too much?
“Each time I hear Wike’s name, I laugh. Somebody said Wike is a man, and I said no, Wike is not a man, Wike is the plural of a man, he is men because he is a dogged fighter. I like dogged fighters.’’
“Wike is not saying make me the party chairman, he is not saying make someone from Rivers State or the South-South the party chairman, but any political region from the south, is that asking for too much?
“Wike has tried and I encourage him. I pray for him everyday, do not give up on this party chairman fight.’’
‘’You see, if PDP had agreed that the party chairman should resign and indeed he resigned, these problems won’t be there.’’
“How can you be having PDP presidential rallies and Gov Wike is not there, these other governors won’t be there.’’
The chieftain added that Wike’s fight is an honest battle.
