…Insists Ayu remains Party’s National Chairman, declares support for his leadership
A political group, Democratic Solidarity Group, DSG, has urged the leaders and critical stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to as a matter of urgency, resolve all lingering crises that may impede the chances of PDP winning next year’s general elections.
The group also insisted that Sen. Iyorchia Ayu remains the PDP National Chairman, and should be allowed to lead the party to victory in 2023 polls.
Speaking recently at Asaba, Delta State capital, over the weekend, after the group 4th NEC Meeting, the Director General, Amb. Ubong David said the PDP remains the party to beat in the 2023 general elections, calling for leaders of the party to sheath swords and bury their differences, for the overall interest of the party.
Amb. David stated emphatically, that PDP will produce the next President of Nigeria, win more state governors, and majority seats at both chambers of the National Assembly, and State House of Assemblies respectively, saying all issues should be resolved as the electioneering campaign is to commence in earnest.
He maintained that the Ayu-led National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP was democratically elected in a well-attended National Convention by all structures of the party, as such should be allowed to serve their tenure successfully, without unnecessary shenanigans and grandstanding by a few vested interest.
“We are very much aware that some key positions of the party are being occupied by our members from the northern part of the country. Because we have a few months to the general elections, all lingering issues should be resolved amicably by our leaders who the younger generation is looking forward to.
“We cannot go to a very sensitive election with a divided house, as no responsible football team will go to an important match with a divided team,” Amb. David stressed.
He said at this critical moment, PDP needs a firm, upright, resourceful, destabilized, tolerant, and adorable politician like Sen. Dr. Iyorchia Ayu to lead the party to rescue Nigeria from the abyssal of failure from the APC-led administration.
“Sen. Iyorchia Ayu is well respected and highly regarded personality based on his outstanding record of achievements in previous public offices.
“He has demonstrated capacity in his few months on the saddle of leadership as the National Chairman of PDP. He is a celebrated manager and leader of men and resources. Having served in different roles of public trust, it is crystal clear that Ayu is reliable, dependable, and trustworthy.
“Our National Chairman has proven in all ramifications that he was fully prepared for this seemingly insurmountable task. He has the acumen to lead the PDP out of the doldrums. He is a relationship builder, approachable, a team player, a critical thinker, emotionally mature, and well prepared for the job.
“The election of Ayu-led NWC is a ray of hope for all party members, party admirers, Nigerians, and Nigeria as a whole”.
He, therefore, called on all PDP members to rally support for the National Chairman, Presidential Candidates, and all PDP Candidates across the country, assuring that there will be wild jubilations across Nigeria as PDP will coast home to victory in the 2023 polls.
