Makinde Meets Atiku, Says Ayu Must Resign As PDP’s Chairman

Speaking at the party’s stakeholders meeting, Makinde called for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu as the party’s chairman.

“Our party wants to rescue and our candidate is a unifier. He wants to restructure Nigeria,” he said.

“Eight years of the All Progressives Congress have left us sharply divided. The issue is we must practice what we preach. If we want to unify Nigeria, we must unify the PDP first.

“If we want to restructure Nigeria, we must have the willingness to bring inclusivity to the PDP. Do we have the capacity? The answer is a resounding yes.

“The message from the southwest PDP is that the southwest is asking that the national working committee (NWC) of the PDP should be restructured.

“We are asking the national chairman to step down so that the south will be fully included. That is the message.”

Makinde’s met with Atiku to discuss the future of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
