The former Governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, has described the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu, as an unmitigated disaster.
Reacting to Ayu’s suspension in a statement on Tuesday, Nnamani said the leadership style of the former Senate President has brought misfortune to the PDP.
The Senator representing Enugu East, however, asked Ayu to resign as the national chairman of the party immediately following “his deception and abysmal performance in office”
Nnamani further said Ayu lacked the moral right to stay a day longer in office as National Chairman.
He said, “Ayu is just an unmitigated disaster. His leadership is an evil that befell the PDP. The only option left is to show him the exit door.
How can Ayu be relying on the PDP constitution Section 57 (7) to seek refuge when he had flagrantly subverted the same section to sack key stakeholders of the party including me?
If he still has any modicum of honour, he should quit immediately. Look at the shame he has brought on the PDP. Look at the array of key stakeholders Ayu has sacked or forced to leave the party.”
Nnamani recalled that the Ayu-led NWC relied on the aforementioned section to expel him when it lacked the power to do so pointing out that Ayu’s case now is “akin to the evil that men do lives with them.”
He, therefore, urged the NEC and the Board of Trustees of the party to wade in to show Ayu the exit door to save the party from complete extinction.
