Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has described as out of order the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Board of Trustees resolution that mandated the national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu to commit that he would resign after the 2023 elections.

The governor wondered why the BOT could not make Ayu fulfil his initial commitment that he would resign if a northerner emerges as presidential candidate from the PDP convention.

“To say he should make another commitment that he will resign after the elections, for me, BOT resolution is ridiculous,” the governor said.

Wike also expressed mixed feelings over comments credited to the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, advising Northerners that they should vote for him in the 2023 election because he hails from the northern region.

Wike said if true, such a statement was a threat to the unity of the country at a time when concerted efforts should be made in giving every citizen a sense of belonging.

The governor spoke on Monday at the international wing of the Port Harcourt International Airport, shortly after arriving from Spain.

Wike was accompanied by Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu and Samuel Ortom of Abia and Benue States.

“I don’t believe that my candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party could make such a statement. But assuming he did make that statement, and this is one of the things we have been saying, this country needs to be united and part of the way you unite it is to include everybody,” he said.

The governor said Atiku’s handlers should also share in the blame for allowing their principal to make such a comment in public.
