Iyorchia Ayu, national chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lashed out at those calling for his resignation.
Recall it was widely reported earlier that camp of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State had given Ayu’s resignation as one of the conditions that has to be fulfilled to resolve the post-presidential primaries crisis rocking the opposition party.
Ayu who spoke in an interview with BBC Hausa Service, said those calling for his resignation are kids and were nowhere to be found when they struggled to form the party.
“I was voted as PDP Chairman for a four-year tenure and I’m yet to complete a year. Atiku’s victory doesn’t affect the Chairman’s position. I won my election based on our party’s constitution.
“I didn’t commit any offense I’m only reforming the party so I’m not bothered with all the noises. I know I’m doing my work and I didn’t steal any money so I see no reason for all these talks. When we started PDP, these children were not around. They are children who do not know why we formed the party. We will not allow any individual to destabilize our party.”
