Atiku Abubakar Atiku Abubakar

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has responded to Governor Seyi Makinde's suggestion for the chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu to resign.

According to Atiku, Ayu can only be asked to resign when the party's constitution is amended, and that will not happen any time soon.

He made this known during the South-West PDP stakeholders meeting on Wednesday September 14, 2022.

He said: “I have no problem about anywhere any party member comes from but it must be done in accordance with the party’s constitution or regulations and practices.

"What governor Seyi Makinde is calling for is achievable under the party’s constitution under the party rules and regulations and procedures.

“This constitution must guide whatever changes we make, so that is why we cannot do anything outside that constitution unless it is amended.

"We do not say people should not have different views but all views must go through the party’s constitution, rules regulations and our practices”.
