The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorcha Ayu, has described Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as an asset to the party.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communication to the embattled national chairman, Yusuf Dingyadi, said this during an interview with reporters in Kaduna on Tuesday.
Dingyadi said Governor Wike is one of the leaders who has contributed immensely to the party and has helped to rescue the opposition party from crises.
He pointed out that Ay did not wish to see the party in crisis, adding that efforts are been made to address individual differences that will lead the party to victory in the 2023 elections.
Dingyadi said since Ayu took over as the chairman of the party, he has made tremendous progress in building the party in all 36 States including Abuja.
He said: “Nigerians need to know that PDP has a mechanism for reconciliation in place and the mechanism has been trying to reconcile those who are not happy since the conclusion of our primaries.
“We are trying to see that everyone is giving a fear hearing. As we speak, the local reconciliation committee is meeting with party members at the state level to discuss issues and find solutions to those issues.
“For example, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is one of the great assets to PDP. He is a leader, governor and somebody who has helped to rescue PDP since time immemorial.
“Now, it is not the making of our national chairman to see things happening this way. But some people who are not happy that PDP is making effort to unite and wrestle power from APC are the ones fanning the ember of disunity within the party.
“Since Ayu took over as the chairman of the party to date, he has made tremendous progress in building the party in all 36 States including the FCT Abuja.”
