According to Emmanuel Orker-Jev, senator representing Benue north-west, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may face a “greater problem” if Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman, steps down.
The PDP senator made the comment while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics on Sunday.
Demands for Ayu’s resignation have come from a variety of sources in recent months, most notably Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike’s supporters.
Despite calls for his resignation, the party’s national executive committee (NEC) has opted to support him.
Orker-Jev commented on the development, saying that requests for Ayu’s resignation should be “negotiated.”

“The PDP’s greatest foe will be the PDP itself.” “Every day, I go to bed and wake up dissatisfied with the way things are going,” he explained.
“Not to suggest that problems will not be settled, but it will not be simple. The resignation of the chairman of the board of trustees is one step toward finding a solution to the situation.
“I am a lawyer, and I have studied the party’s constitution.” What will happen if Ayu resigns today? If we follow the constitution and not impunity, the deputy national chairman north will still take over. If the deputy chairman north resigns, the position will be filled by the deputy chairman south.
“Ayu will stand down, but it must be done in such a way that the party does not fall deeper into trouble.” The best that can happen is that we hold a special national convention and perhaps modify the party’s constitution.”
