Ayu Should Resign In The Interest of Peace – Former PDP Spokesperson




A former Peoples Democratic Party spokesperson, Lere Olayinka has called on the National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu to resign.


He spoke in an interview with Punch.


Recall that the PDP has been under serious crisis since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the party’s candidate.


Recently, some members of the NWC returned over N100 million given to them as alleged bribe.


Reacting to the crisis rocking the party, Olayinka asked the National Chairman to resign in the interest of peace.


He said:


There are two sides to a coin. If you ask me, I will tell you that in the interest of balancing he should go. But nobody is saying Ayu should be removed, saying somebody should resign is different from saying he should be removed. Resign in the interest of balance, unity, and the interest of peace in the party. If I were to be in his shoes, I will weigh my options and ask myself – if I resign, will it increase the chances of the party in the election? If my resignation will enhance the chances of the party in the election, I will not wait a second before resigning. For instance, if people say if I drop my House of Representatives ticket, it will be easier to win the presidential election, then I will drop it.
