He stated this at Ilorin Metropolitan Square, Kwara State during the presidential campaign for Abubakar on Thursday.
The G5 Governors made their position known after a closed-door strategic meeting on Sunday in Lagos State.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers and four other governors have been calling for Ayu’s resignation as the national chairman to pave the way for inclusiveness in the party’s administration.
The clarification was contained in a disclaimer sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission by the PDP National Chairman, Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, on October 19, and acknowledged by the electoral body on October 20, 2022.
When he came in, there was no crisis in the PDP, but a man of God, who I follow, Primate Elijah Ayodele, made a prophecy.
The Special Adviser to Ayu on Media, Simon Imobo-Tswam, disclosed this in a statement he issued on Friday.
This development came to the fore on Thursday via letters written to Ayu and drafts for the money to the party.
The governor stated that he was rather interested in preserving the sanity of the party and would stay back to fight for the enthronement of unity, inclusivity, equity and peace in the PDP.
Atiku, in a press release he personally signed Wednesday, said the decision to resign was personal to Ayu and such was not to be forced on him by any individual or group within the first opposition party.
The former Vice President insisted that Ayu’s exit must be done in accordance with the party’s constitution, rules, regulations and practice.
Ayu offered the explanation on Tuesday during the Northern Christian Youth Assembly Summit in Abuja.
Ayu’s journey to Europe comes days to the unveiling of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council for the 2023 polls.
He explained why the Peoples Democratic Party was exploring other options in resolving the crisis rocking the party after the presidential primaries.
The governor said no amount of confidence votes would save Ayu from being ousted from the position.
This was disclosed in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communications, Simon Imobo-Tswam.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the votes of confidence came amidst the calls for Ayu’s resignation by some leaders of the party.
He said it was Ayu’s desire to manage the funds, pointing out that he has demonstrated the highest level of ingratitude and arrogance for describing him and members of his team as children after he assisted in attaining his present position.
The PDP BoT Chairman made his position known on Saturday during an interview on Channels Television Sunday Politics.
Ayu insisted he will not resign now or in the future having been given a four-year mandate to lead the opposition party.
