Wike group pulls out of PDP campaign council


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state and his supporters have pulled out of the Presidential Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The decision was taken at a meeting held in the early hours of Wednesday at the private residence of the governor in Port Harcourt.
In a communique issued at the end of the meeting, they said they will not participate in the PDP Presidential Campaign until the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu resigns from his position.
The communique which was read by a member of the Wike group, Chief  Bode George,  said the campaign council list released by the party translates to putting the cart before horse.
The communique said, “The published Presidential Campaign Council list translates to putting the cart before horse, the pertinent issue remains the Ayu leadership.
“We therefore resolve that senator Iyorchia Ayu resigns as the national chairman for an acting chairman of southern Nigeria extraction.
“We resolved not to participate in the campaign council in whatever capacity until the resignation of Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.”
