EKO HOT BLOG reports that the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyorchia Ayu, has appealed to members across the country to stay united to ensure the party’s success at all times.
He made the plea on Wednesday at an expanded meeting of the PDP Board of Trustees and the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) in Abuja.
“With unity, everything is possible,” Ayu told the PDP leaders at the meeting. “I call on every member of this party to forget their differences. If there are differences, we must settle such differences in-house.
“No party member should attack another party member. If there are any issues, we have different organs of the party to resolve party differences … because such distraction must not be allowed to continue.”
Ayu’s plea to party faithfuls comes against the backdrop of the rift between Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Governor Obaseki recently took a swipe at Governor Wike over his reaction to comments by Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, that PDP members who defected from the APC in Edo were not happy and do not feel accepted into the new party.
He had also said Nigeria needed strong democratic institutions and not strong men, stressing the need for the party to position itself to reclaim power at the centre in 2023.
