The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu is expected to step down this week.
There are demands from the camp of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for Ayu to resign as the party’s chairman.
The demand was among the conditions given by Wike who is still said to be aggrieved over Atiku’s refusal to pick him as a running mate. Already, Wike and Atiku have begun meeting with a view to ensuring that a compromise is reached before the commencement of campaigns next month.
According to an anonymous member of the party, there’s every possibility that Ayu steps down this week during the Party’s next NEC meeting.
