Ayu, who publicly said he would step down as national chairman of the PDP if a northerner emerged as the presidential candidate of the party, has refused to keep his word, which has fueled the crisis rocking the party.
Momodu said the brouhaha became heated when Wike failed in his bid to become the running mate of Atiku after the presidential primary.
