Iyorchia Ayu, the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) national chairman, warned members on Monday not to work against the party’s interests, saying they would not be allowed to “just walk away.”
He issued the warning during his opening remarks at a stakeholders’ meeting and the inauguration of the Ekiti State Governorship Election Reconciliation Committee in Abuja.
The meeting, called by the National Working Committee, was attended by Senator Walid Jibrin, chairman of the Board of Trustees; Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, chairman of the PDP Governors Forum; Governor Nyesom Wike; Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, and former Governor Ayo Fayose.
Segun Oni, Olusola Eleka, Senator Abiodun Olujinmi, and Ajijola Lateef Oladimeji, among others, were among the 17 governorship aspirants for the Ekiti gubernatorial election.
According to Ayu, the NWC made a critical decision to begin the process of resolving issues in state chapters in order to form a united and formidable force for any election, including the upcoming presidential and other national elections in 2023.
