The resignation of the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu remains the only condition that would restore peace to the party, says Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Wike, on Wednesday insisted that he and his loyalists have not changed their minds about their refusal to support the 2023 presidential ambition of their party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

He insisted that Ayu must resign and be replaced by a southerner before he and his loyalists can support the former vice president.

Wike said this during the commissioning of a flyover in Rumueprikon, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Port Harcourt, Rivers State which was done by former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

The Governor insisted that their demand is about upholding the principles of equity, justice, and fairness, adding that there can’t be any reconciliation unless their demand is met.

He said, “People will praise you but the day you say no, they will oppose you. I am sure those of them in my party before they cannot say anything without mentioning Wike. But now because I said let the right thing be done, I have now become an enemy. These are people who are praising me for everything.

“And some people believe they won’t obey an agreement but we say it must be done. We stand for equity, fairness and justice. That is what the G5 will continue to preach. We have said we are not against reconciliation but it must be based on equity, fairness, and justice”.
