The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyiocha Ayu has declared nobody, including Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, can force him to resign.
He vowed he will see out his four-year mandate to run the PDP despite calls for his resignation by Wike and his supporters in the party.
The PDP has been in embroiled in an internal crisis after Atiku picked Delta Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
The decision was considered a slap by the Wike’s camp, which has been holding series of meetings within and outside the country and dishing out conditions for settlement which include call for the national chairman’s resignation.
The Nation quoted Ayu as saying any of those calling for resignation, according to Ayu, were children when he and other chieftains laboured to form the PDP.
