Governor Wike of Rivers State has lashed out at the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu describing him as an ingrate.

Wike's comments come as Ayu, in a BBC Hausa interview described those calling for his resignation as children who didn’t know when the party was formed.

“I have not violated any rules; in fact, I am working to bring reforms to the party. I am truly not bothered by the unnecessary controversy being generated. When we started PDP, these children were not around. They are children who do not know why we formed the party. We will not allow any individual to destabilise our party,” he had said.

Reacting to the comment, while speaking at the commissioning of a road project at Omerelu in Ikwerre Local government area of Rivers, Wike described Ayu as a greedy man who was only after his own interest.”

“You can imagine what power can do. You can imagine the ingratitude; how people can be ingrates in their lives. I thought as a chairman of a party who wants to win elections, your business is to bring peace to your party; your business is not to divide your party. Your business is not to show arrogance to your party.

“Yes, the children brought you to be chairman of the party. The children brought you from the gutter to make you chairman.

“Ayu, you were impeached as senate president. Ayu, you were sacked by Obasanjo in his administration. Arrogance cannot take you anywhere. Now, we have seen that you don’t want the party to win the election. We will help you.”
