Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike says the reason he is supporting the removal of the estranged National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, is because of his “unproductive leadership style”.
TOP MEDIA reports that Wike said this when he spoke at the Rumuigbo Civic Centre, venue of the inauguration of Rumuigbo Internal Roads in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area (LGA) on Wednesday.
The governor maintained that under Ayu, the PDP became weak, lacking that kind of leadership that should make it a strong political force to reckon with because embattled national chairman was busy with personal gains he could grab.
“That is why I am in support that that bloody criminal must leave office if we want PDP to be strengthened.
“I owe no apology to anybody. I said it before, this is the final fight we will fight and we are going to win this fight,” Wike said.
This media platform reports that the PDP has been enmeshed in a major internal crisis after its presidential primary last May that produced former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as its candidate.
On Tuesday, Ayu stepped aside after intense pressure from some top party chieftains led by Wike.
