“May I urge the national chairman, therefore, to use his wealth of experience to make the party great as it remains the largest party in Africa.
“You must try to reconcile Individuals, states, and national issues. Do not be distracted by the ambition of individual members but keep the party as formidable as possible.
“Concentrate on your duties and not more of who shall be the president, vice president, senate president etc. Do not side any individual with self ambition and try to reduce the state of godfatherism.

Meanwhile, Ayu came under attack by the Buhari Media Organisation for comparing President Muhammadu Buhari's administration with past governments of Nigeria.

The chairman of the organisation, Niyi Akinsiju, and BMOO's secretary, Cassidy Madueke, said it was criminal for Ayu who was academic to manipulate existing records for partisan politics.

The duo in a statement seen by Legit.ng said Ayu's comment that Nigeria is yet to record any form of progress since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015 was false and should be disregarded.
