PDP crisis: Ayu to go, Wike’s camp to produce replacement from S/West

The Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is under immense pressure from his loyalists following reports that he has yielded to the demand by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, for the removal of the PDP National Chairman, Iyiochia Ayu.

It was gathered in Abuja, on Friday, that several agreements were arrived at after the face-to-face meeting between Atiku and Wike in London. Part of the agreement is that Ayu should be given a dignified exit and accommodated in the new PDP government when it is formed.

The Wike Camp equally extracted a commitment from Atiku to be allowed to produce Ayu’s replacement and that the person should be from the South West Zone.

It is however unclear if Atiku yielded to the demand by Wike’s camp to serve for a single term to allow for power to shift to the south to assuage feeling of betrayal of southerners.

Members of the Wike camp will also be appointed into yet to be agreed key ministerial positions as well as the headship of Federal parastatals and agencies if they win the 2023 general elections.
