Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has backed his counterpart from Rivers, Nyesom Wike in demanding the resignation of the PDP’s National Chairman, Iyochia Ayu.
Makinde spoke on Wednesday when the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar visited Ibadan, Oyo State.
According to Makinde, the truth is that they did not have any issue either with the PDP party or the party’s presidential candidate.
He said if there were challenges, they must be tabled, saying that the PDP was supposed to give hope to the people and to ensure they listened to the PDP.
“Our party wants to rescue Nigeria and our candidate is a unifier. He wants to restructure Nigeria. Eight years of the All Progressives Congress have left us sharply divided,” he said.
Makinde said the issue was that the party must practice what it preached, saying if the PDP wants to unify Nigeria, it must unify itself first.
According to him, if the PDP wanted to restructure Nigeria, it must have the willingness to bring inclusivity to the party.
“Do we have the capacity? The answer is resounding yes. The message from the South-West PDP is the South-West is asking that the National Working Committee of the PDP should be restructured.
“We are asking the National Chairman to step down so that the South will be fully included. That is the message.”
