Wike’s camp calls for Ayu’s sack

As gathered by Legit.ng, PDP members of the Wike’s faction are calling for the ouster of Ayu as the PDP chairman and blamed him primarily for the current predicament of the party.

The source said:

“How can you have your house burning and you are nowhere to be seen? The problem on ground goes beyond what emissaries can resolve. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar needs to be around now to take care of this brewing crisis or he should forget the election,” a party leader who preferred anonymity volunteered to the Nigerian Tribune.

“Wike’s people are now pushing for the removal of the national chairman before he will sit in negotiations with Atiku. That is a serious problem and our presidential candidate is not around to preside over efforts to resolve the issue.”

Meanwhile, Wike is yet to publicly speak about the latest development as it seems as though he is still hurt by the whole turn of events, a claim Governor Samuel Ortom recently made.

Wike’s silence is currently putting party stalwarts on the edge as his next move is yet to be known, a move that might either make or mar the party because of his huge influence and impact on the party.
