The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, who has been at loggerheads with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has described him as a great asset of the party.
The PDP National Chairman praised Wike through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communication, Yusuf Dingyadi, in a chat with journalists in Kaduna on Tuesday, saying the Rivers governor had helped to rescue PDP since time immemorial.
Ayu said: “We are trying to see that everyone is giving a fear hearing. As we speak, the local reconciliation committee is meeting with party members at the state level to discuss issues and find solutions to those issues.
“For example, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, is one of the great assets to PDP. He is a leader, governor, and somebody who has helped to rescue PDP since time immemorial.
“Since Ayu took over as the chairman of the party to date, he has made tremendous progress in building the party in all 36 States including the FCT Abuja.”
Recall that Governor Wike had been calling for Ayu to step down for the partisan role he allegedly played during the PDP presidential primary.
Ayu had insisted that he is going nowhere.
