Ayu will step, down but it has to be negotiated in such a way that the party will not go into a deeper crisis – PDP Senator

Sep 12, 2022

Emmanuel Orker-Jev, a senator representing Benue north-west has expressed fear of the party being plunged into a bigger crisis should its current chairman, Iyorchia Ayu step down. 

 

Commenting on calls for Ayu to resign in an interview with Channels Television, Emmanuel noted that Ayu will step down, but it has to be negotiated in such a way that the party will not go into a deeper crisis. 

 

He said;

 

“The biggest enemy of the PDP will be the PDP itself. Every day, I go to bed and wake up very unsatisfied with how things are going.

“Not to say that things will not be resolved, but it’s not going to be an easy thing. The resignation of the board of trustees chairman is one step to finding the solution to the problem.

“I am a lawyer and I have read the constitution of the party. If Ayu steps down today, what will happen? The deputy national chairman north will still take over if we are going by the constitution, if we are not going by impunity. If the deputy chairman north steps down, then it will go to the deputy chairman south.

“Ayu will step down but it has to be negotiated in such a way that the party will not go into a deeper crisis. The best that can happen is that we call for a special national convention and even change the constitution of the party.”
