However, the source further revealed that Atiku is ready to entertain Wike's demand if only it is reasonable to an extent.

Another source who gave an account of the current development revealed that some of the party members who want the exit of the incumbent party chairman (Dr Iyorchia Ayu) have other agendas.

The source said:

“Even though I don’t wish to dabble into this issue, I have to ask; what is the ulterior motive of the people calling for the resignation of Senator Ayu at this time when the commencement of campaigns is just a few weeks away?
“I concede that there might be some merit in the agitation of these people but what I don’t feel comfortable with is the timing. I think we should all wait till after the election for such clamour.
