The governor added that he supported Ayu’s suspension and that the people rejected the PDP because Ayu refused to resign from his chairmanship position.

Governor Wike accused Ayu of trading the party’s victory at the polls for his interest, saying, “It is only in this country that someone who has lost woefully during the general elections still wants to occupy the position of Chairmanship in PDP.”

He further stated that Ayu lost his ward, local government, and took a distant third position in the presidential and governorship elections.

“I am in support of Ayu’s suspension in Benue. If he had left before the elections, they would have said his leaving was the reason PDP lost the election; thank God he presided over the colossal failure of the party during the general elections,” Governor Wike added.

Wike and the g5 governors have been campaigning for Ayu’s resignation as national chairman, to create regional representation balance in the leadership of the PDP. The aggrieved governors vowed to not work for the party in the presidential elections.
