Ayu’s Children Will Disown Him If I Spill All His ‘Crimes’ – Wike
Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike said on Friday that the children of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, will disown him if all the happenings in the party involving their father are made public.
Naija News reports that the PDP chieftain made the assertion while speaking during a live chat with journalists at the government house in Port Harcourt today.
Wike said there are a lot of events that have happened in the nation’s main opposition party but for the love of PDP will choose to remain mute. He stressed that Ayu’s child will go to their father and say ‘you are not our father’ if he should disclose his activities in the PDP.
This is as Wike who had earlier alleged that Ayu collected N1 billion from a politician in Lagos, stated further that the party leader also collected N100million from a state governor in the build-up to the 2023 general elections.
The Rivers State governor who had also with his allies maintained their stand that Ayu must resign his position for someone from the Southern part of the country, said on Friday that the party chairman is not a man of integrity.
Wike said he sees no reason why PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will come from the North and yet the party national chairman is a northerner.
