The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Iyorchia Ayu says Nigerians are hungry and need a rescuer.
Speaking on Monday at the flag-off of the PDP presidential rally in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom, Ayu said the party began its campaign on a slow pace so everyone can be carried along.
RovingNaija noticed that Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike and his allies — Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu were absent from the rally on Monday.
Ayu, who has refused to grant the demand of Wike to resign as the party chairman, said Nigerians are not interested in their personal quarrels.
“We are moving slowly so that those who are yet on board will join us on the train. It is important for us as leaders. Nigeria is not interested in our personal quarrels; Nigeria is waiting for us to come and rescue them from what is worrying them,” he said.
“Nigerians are hungry; Nigerians are suffering from all sorts of sickness; Nigerians cannot move from one point to another without worries; Nigerians cannot sleep because of insecurity.
“Nigerians are getting more and more divided; Nigerians are complaining and are hoping that what we did for them in the last 16 years, we will come back and do it for them again.
“Let us all join hands together because we have the solution. Already, we have penned down the covenant with Nigerians. We will restore the economy to its glory.
“All young people will get jobs; the economy will grow; there will be more industries. Every PDP governor has performed well. Therefore, when we get to power from state houses of assembly to the state governors, the national assembly, we need all of them to support our president who is coming to power next year to redeem Nigerians. PDP will not disappoint you.”Follow us on social media
