The newly-elected National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu, has described members of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, as a bunch of unserious people.
According to the former president of the Nigerian senate, APC has no good intention towards the country and the electorate who brought them to power.
Ayu described the ruling party as the biggest cancer affecting the country, stressing that only an “unserious” political party would allow an incumbent Governor as its interim National Chairman, spending his tenure at the nation’s capital.
“Even their governors, if you look at their governors, they are the worst in this country. How can an incumbent governor leave his state for years and stay in Abuja just because he is the national chairman of the political party? Who is governing his state? That is how unserious they are in APC,” Ayu said.
Newspot understands that the PDP Chairman directed the unfriendly statements to the ruling party when he received in person, a delegation of the Coalition of United Political Party, CUPP, led by Ikenga Ugochinyere at his Abuja residence on Monday.
Ayu who revealed that the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, and some other politicians in Aso Rock are his friends, said that the politicians are blindly in the wrong government.
The Benue-born politician stressed that they have no reason to be part of the ruling party.
Ayu, a former Senate President, stated that there is a need for all stakeholders in PDP to work together to defeat the APC in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
He added: “They have no good intentions directed to the people who elected them. And you as a coalition of political parties of Nigeria, have to draw the attention of Nigeria. I think if we work together as a multi-party system not just attacking each other, attacking personalities.
“I have no personal issues with President Muhammadu Buhari or all the people working with him in the Villa. In fact, some of them are my friends, like the Chief of Staff, Professor Gambari, I respect him.
“He has been a friend of mine for years but he is in the wrong government. What should he be doing there? Why should a decent Nigerian like that be there?” Ayu asked.
