The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State Chapter has declared its support for the vote of confidence the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) passed on the National chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu.

This was contained in a statement on Friday by Kennedy Ikantu Perete, State Publicity Secretary, PDP Ondo State.

There have been various calls for the resignation of Ayu following the emergence of a fellow Northener, Atiku Abubakar as the party’s presidential candidate, with the most recent, coming from the former Deputy National chairman, Chief Olabode George.

The Ondo Chapter of the party also declared its support for Atiku as the party looks to secure power come February 2023.

Reiterating its commitment to help the party secure victory at the general elections in 2023, Ondo PDP declared that it is ready to end the ‘misrule of the All Progressives Congress.’

The statement read in part, “Since the coming of the All Progressives Congress (APC) entered the saddle in 2015, Nigeria has been on a free fall. We moved from the biggest economy in Africa to World capital of poverty. As a nation, we are struggling for space for a ranking in failed states with Afghanistan and Syria under President Muhammad Buhari.

“We unconditionally support the presidential candidate of our party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who possesses the experience and capacity to lead Nigeria to the destination of our dreams.

“Our focus and priority at this critical time is victory at the polls. And we shall commit all our energies to ensuring victory,” it read.
