‘He has nothing to give,’ Wike said of Ayu’s 2023 election results


Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has insulted former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu over the party’s loss in the 2023 presidential election.

Wike, who advocated for Ayu’s resignation in the run-up to the polls, stated the PDP chieftain from Benue has no electoral worth.

“So, you can see that he has nothing to offer to the party. We won here which means we have something to offer to the party. Ayu has nothing to offer to the party,” the governor said in a media chat with selected journalists in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

While the PDP has nominated an acting national chairman, Wike believes the move is insignificant. He was pleased, though, that Ayu did not resign as PDP chairman before the election.

“What advantage is Ayu’s stepping aside?” he asked.

But he admits that “we are happy that Ayu did not go that time because if he had gone, they would have been saying that it was because he left that is why we lost [the presidential election].”
