Wike Blasts Ayu For Failing To Deliver Benue To PDP

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has ridiculed the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu for not being able to deliver Benue State to the party in the presidential and governorship elections.

Ayu is from Benue State. The All Progressives Congress (APC) won both the presidential and governorship elections in Benue.

Wike, while speaking in Rivers on Wednesday boasted that in Rivers State, PDP won the governorship, three senatorial seats, 10 federal and 31 federal and state constituencies in the general elections.

He said, ironically, Ayu, who once derided the G-5 governors as small boys failed to win his ward, local government and State for the presidential candidate in the 25 February election.

According to him, PDP also lost woefully in Niger, Jigawa, Imo, Sokoto, Yobe and other states.


“Ayu lost his polling unit. I won three senatorial seats, and 31 House of Assembly seats. He didn’t get anything. Lamido did not win the presidential election in Jigawa. Babangida Aliyu did not win. So, who is the betrayer? We won to make sure PDP exists. Of what relevance is he as national chairman? He couldn’t deliver his polling unit.”

Wike dismissed insinuation that he would try to manipulate the Rivers State governor-elect, Siminailayi Fubara, when he leaves office.

The governor also clarified that Fubara, who resigned as Accountant General of the State to contest the 2023 governorship election, is not wanted by the EFCC. According to him, some disgruntled politicians in the State were behind the rumour.

Wike stated that Fubara on assumption of office would continue from where his administration stopped and will consolidate on the new Rivers Vision.
