‘We Brought You From The Gutters And Made You PDP Chairman’ – Wike Tells Ayu

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has blasted the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, for his “arrogance” and “ingratitude”, who he claimed was brought from the gutters to become party chairman.

Speaking at the commissioning of the internal road in Omerelu community in Ikwerre local government area of Rivers on Thursday, Wike reminded Ayu that “These children you said we are, brought you from nothing,” threatening to help PDP lose the 2023 presidential election.

The governor who was responding to recent comments by the National Chairman of the PDP.

The PDP national chairman had said that those calling for his resignation are children.

Responding Wike said “Dr Ayu said we are children. Yes, the children brought you from the gutter to make you chairman.

“Now we have seen that you don’t want the party to win election, we will help you.

“These children you said we are, that brought you from nothing.

“Ayu, you said you founded this party, but you left the party in 2007. You founded a company, you left the company, people stood and brought out the company to what it is today, you have no moral right to still come and claim that you founded that company, you left with your shares.

“You want to show integrity, you want to show a party to Nigeria that we want to take over, you must convince Nigerians that we have the integrity.

“You are the driver that will drive the vehicle to convey us to go our destination. That is the victory we are looking for.

“If the driver has no integrity and cannot show honesty, how do you convince Nigerians?

“If you tell Nigerians something and cannot do it, is it when you enter into power that you will do it?

“Nigerians have seen how ungrateful some of you can be, and that’s why Nigerians also want to be careful, if we give these people power, are you sure they will also be grateful to Nigerians”.

The Rivers governor further said the N14bn PDP realised from the sale of forms for the party’s primaries must be judiciously used.
