Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has berated the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu saying that he was “brought from the gutter” to manage the party.
According to the Governor, Ayu was brought from the gutter to lead the party and his focus ought to be on how to win the 2023 presidential election not making enemies.
Taking a swipe at Ayu for calling some people who are pressuring him to resign from office ‘small boys’, the governor said “you said we are children abi? Children brought you from the gutter; we brought you from the gutter”. He recalled that Ayu was impeached as President of the Senate and also removed in a cabinet reshuffle by the Olusegun Obasanjo administration adding that Ayu has become arrogant.
“Ayu, you were impeached as Senate President. You were sacked two times by Obasanjo. You have become so arrogant. You have shown that you don’t want to win the election. These children you said that we are brought you from nothing.
“AYU, you said that you founded this party but you left the party in 2007. You founded a company and you left the company. People stood and brought the company to what it is today. You have no moral right to still come and claim that you founded that party or company: you left with your shares. Other shareholders have come in. You want to show indignity: you want to show Nigerians that your party can takeover, you have to show that you have the integrity to drive the vehicle that will convey us to the destination, that is, the victory we are looking for”, Wike said.
