CAPITAL POST learnt that other party chieftains are also part of the meeting.

Those who are present in Abuja Lagos meeting are, Olusegun Mimiko, former governor of Ondo, Ayo Fayose, former governor of Ekiti, Donald Duke, former governor of Cross River, Bode George, former deputy national chairman and few others.

The centre point of discussion in today’s meeting is the possible removal of the National Chairman of PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.

The aggrieved governors reasoned that the presidential flagbearer of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu cannot come from the same zone, thus, the party boss should resign from office.

Their demand was however met with resistance as Ayu insisted that he has the mandate to run the course of his office to its fullest.

Amid the deepening crisis, Wike’s allies pulled out of the PDP presidential campaign council while vowing not to support Atiku.

In October, the Rivers governor had accused the PDP national chairman of being “very corrupt” and not being accountable for the money that enters the party’s coffers.

He alleged that Ayu received N1 billion from a presidential hopeful and another N100 million from a governor to do a project already paid for by the party.

But the PDP national chairman denied both claims.

On Saturday, Wike dared Ayu to head to court if he’s innocent of the corruption accusation levelled against him.
