The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, on Monday declared that there was no crisis in the party and that members who are not on the party’s campaign train are welcome to join.
According to him, the party is focused on wrestling power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general election. Naija News gathered that Ayu, while speaking in the Benue Community in Kaduna said “there is no crisis in PDP, the train is moving and those who are not on the train should, please join.” The PDP’s national chairman appealed to the people of the Benue community in Kaduna to unite more for PDP ahead of the 2023 elections. Ayu who was with the PDP governorship standard bearer for Kaduna State, Ashiru Kudan, and the former Senate President, Liyel Imoke said “I am grateful that within few hours of notice, the Benue community in Kaduna has come out in this large numbers to receive me, it shows your passion for me and the PDP as the largest political party in West Africa. “The leadership of the PDP will ensure a clementine environment for all people to operate. All of you that dwell in Kaduna among other citizens are indeed indigenes of Kaduna State and must rally around the PDP gubernatorial candidate. “I hand over Ashiru to you and at the same time hand over you to Ashiru, you must work together for victory next year and I’m sure he will appreciate your support with appointments,” Ayu remarked. Also present at the community with them was the Vice Presidential candidate of the party, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who appreciated the community for their reception, adding that the achievements of the PDP since 1999 are great and that the party hopes to revamp and revitalise those wasted years of productivity. Meanwhile, the President of the Benue Community in Kaduna, Paul Wachihi, was impressed with the leadership style of their son, Iyorchia Ayu.
