E say such decision go be for expediency purposes in order to allow for a southerner to become national chairman of di PDP.
“All we want na, now wey you don give di presidency to di North, let us (South) take our own chairman, becos when dem dey meet for decision making, di presidential candidate go Sidon dia, national chairman go sidon dia, DG of campaign go sidon and dem go take decision and come out and tell you to execute.
”Non-inclusivity na part of di problem wey Nigeria get, not just poor economy or insecurity. Evribodi gats feel say you dey carry dem along so you fit win.
“Those wey think say dem dey too powerful, highly connected, and that dem own di party say zoning of di presidential ticket no suppose dey– ‘leave am open and let di best candidate emerge’ – because dem think dem get di numbers.
“We jettison our constitution not knowing dat dey lay di foundation, di seed of discord for di future.” E tok.
Wetin Atiku tok about call for Ayu resignation
Di presidential candidate also tok say on top calls for di resignation or removal from office of di PDP national chairman, Iyorcha Ayu, e no fit tok put.”
Di decision for Dr. Iyorchia Ayu to resign from office dey personal to Dr. Ayu and, neither me nor anyone else fit make dat decision for am”.
E add say, “as to di calls to remove Dr. Ayu from office, I go tok say, as one committed democrat and firm believer for di rule of law and democratic idea, and our party be one set up, wey dey organized and regulated by law and our constitution, e be my absolute belief say every tin wey we do for our party need to be according with, and match with di law and our constitution”.
Atiku tok.Atiku also add say If dem go remove Dr. Ayu from office, e suppose be according to di law wey set out di basis for dat kind removal .
“Di tin wey even dey be say make pipo remember say di body wey get di power by law to start dis removal from office, don already pass vote of confidence on am,” Atiku tok.
