- The politician in Wike's camp said only Ayu's resignation can bring an end to the PDP's current leadership crisis
Loyalists of Governor Nyesom Wike in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have alleged that the resignation of the party's national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, is with the former Senate president, David Mark.
According to a source who spoke with journalists recently, Wike's men said Ayu's resignation is the only “irreducible minimum condition” for peace to reign between the leadership of the party and the Rivers governor, Arise TV reports.
Insisting that they should be in charge of choosing Ayu's successor, those in Wike's camp called on Mark to open up the party's current unrest.
The source who chatted with This Day noted that Wike's men believe that the governor has worked so hard for the party and has a lot to bring to the table when he comes on board.
