Children brought you from gutter to be PDP chairman – Wike fires back at Ayu

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Thursday fired back at the chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Iyorchia Ayu for referring to some members of the party as children.

In his word, “these children you said we are, brought you from nothing,” Wike said during the commissioning of Omerelu Internal roads in the Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

“Dr Ayu said we are children. Yes, the children brought you to be chairman of the party, the children brought you from the gutter to make you chairman.

Wike further challenged Ayu to show himself as a man of honour and integrity by fulfilling his promise that he would vacate the chairmanship seat if the northern region produces the presidential candidate of the party.

Ayu had insisted that he will not succumb to calls from PDP members loyal to Wike for him to resign his position.

He said such calls are coming from political amateurs who lack a basic understanding of PDP’s principles, saying he was elected by Nigerians and PDP members based on PDP’s guidelines
