Senior Special Assistant (Media and Communications) to the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu, Yusuf Dingyadi said on Sunday that removal of his principal was not the priority of the party’s faithful in the North.
Dingyadi, who stated this in an interview with newsmen in Sokoto added that his principal has been a trusted ally of politicians, academia, business community and other categories of people from all parts of the country, hence, his acceptability.
According to Dingyadu, Ayu position as the party head would surely strengthen the chances of the party in winning the 2023 presidential election.
The trusted credibility and detribalized progressive politics always played by Ayu, has been the bedrock of his widespread political support in the country, Dingyadi further emphasised.
The Media Aide cautioned Nigerians against being misguided by some elements that capitalise on ethnic and religious divisions in politics to cause disagreement within the party system and national politics.
To him, peace and stability of Nigeria as a nation should be sacrosanct and condemned the activities of some groups sponsoring political agitations against Ayu’s PDP leadership, especially hiring thugs to showcase their own selfishness.
”Nigerians should always stay away from comedians who play television politics in an attempt to showcase their strength and decapitate party unity for ego and selfishness
”The PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), National Executive Committee (NEC) and Committee Working Committee (CWC) stakeholders have unanimously passed a vote of confidence on Ayu to continue as a chairman. So, there is no reason for behind curtains lamentation and mischief.
“This efforts is in recognition of track records and initiatives which placed the party in a strong pedestals and reawaken our political popularity in the country.
“We therefore appeal to our members to remain focused, disciplined and committed with a view to taking our party to victory in 2023″, he said.
