Ayu helped Atiku defeat Wike at PDP Primary – Jang

The former governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, has accused the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu, of helping Atiku Abubakar emerge as the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election at the expense of his opponents including Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State during the primary election.

Jang stated this when he spoke on Wednesday following a meeting of some PDP members who are on the side of Governor Wike in Port Harcourt.

He likened Ayu to a “referee” who helped one of the sides to score a goal and blew the whistle that a goal had been scored.

The ex-Plateau governor alleged that Ayu had a “private arrangement” with the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, to shortchange Governor Nyesom Wike and other aspirants at the party presidential primary.

Recall that at the PDP party’s presidential primary, Tambuwal, who was one of the leading candidates, made a last-minute decision to step down and asked his supporters to cast their votes for Atiku.
