The PDP national chairman, Doctor Iyorchia Ayu said he is not bothered by the calls for his resignation.
Iyorchia Ayu, speaking on the BBC Hausa service said those calling for his removal are children who were nowhere to be found when the party was being formed in 1998.
The camp of Governor Nyesom Wike has been demanding for Ayu’s removal as one of the pre-condition to support the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar during the 2023 polls.
The PDP national chairman said there is no basis for the call because he did not commit any offence, adding that he is just attempting to reposition the party ahead of the 2023 polls.
He accused those calling for his resignation as noise makers, saying that Atiku’s presidential ticket has nothing to do with his position for which he was elected for a four year tenure and is yet to use one year.
