The National Chairman of PDP, Dr. lyorchia Ayu commended Governor Wike and PDP governors for spreading development to every nook and crannies of their states.
He said while the APC controlled government is busy borrowing money from foreign creditors and increasing the debt burden on Nigeria, PDP Governors are visible and delivering dividend of democracy.
Dr. Ayu berated APC governors, particularly, one of them who he said has abandoned his governorship responsibilities in his State to reside in Abuja to do party chairmanship job. Worst still, he said another one hid 19 billion Naira in the bank instead of providing development to his people.
“I’m not only proud of the governor of Rivers, I’m proud of PDP governors. Every PDP governor with the resources base of the state have been trying very hard to make sure that the people get the dividends of democracy.”
“The other party, the governors take power as a joke. How on earth can a governor leave his state and become a party chairman and live in Abuja without making any effort to develop his state. I believe such action does not take into recognition the people who laboured to elect such a governor.
“How can a governor of a State take N19 billion and go and hide in a bank account, in a state where he has not paid salaries. He has not been able to do any positive development by ways of hospital, road construction or anything. No PDP governor has hidden N19 billion in his account, the little they get, they are busy making effort to develop their areas.”
Dr. Ayu also said that his leadership will ensure that they increase the number of states controlled by the PDP, produce majority membership of the National Assembly.
“The Peoples Democratic Party is prepared to expand its base not only in control of states, but in control of the National Assembly and ultimately also the return to the villa in Abuja where we shall put a president of PDP extraction.”
The national chairman assured party faithful that the PDP under his watch will allow internal democracy to flourish. He declared that only names of candidates who emerge through a democratic process will be forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
“We believe that the will of the people must prevail. Any state that democratically elect anybody and the list is forwarded to us, it is that list that will go to INEC. Nobody’s list is going to be altered. Anybody in party’s headquarters who attempts that and it comes to our knowledge as National Working Committee, you will leave party headquarters.”
