The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Iyorchia Ayu, has said those championing the campaign to see him resign are no without knowledge of the party’s ideals.
He stated this in an interview with the Hausa Service of the BBC which was monitored by our correspondent.
Ayu noted that he is not worried about the calls for his resignation because those behind it are youngsters who do not have a grasp of the goals of the party when it was formed.
He vowed not to allow anyone to destabilise the party as PDP members and stakeholders elected him based on laid down rules.
The PDP helmsman stressed that even if there would be another election, those calling for his resignation would not be replacing him, hence the need for them to understand the essence of the party’s formation and the rules that guide its operations.
“I was voted as PDP Chairman for 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,” Ayu stated.
He then added that “I didn’t commit any offence; 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.
