The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has addressed calls for the resignation of the party's National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

Speaking in a statement on Wednesday, the former vice president noted that Ayu's removal from office must be done in accordance with the law.

According to Atiku, the very body empowered by law to initiate Ayu's removal has passed a vote of confidence in him.

“As a committed democrat and firm believer in the rule of law and democratic tenets, and our party being one set up, organised and regulated by law and our constitution, it is my absolute belief that everything that we do in our party must be done in accordance with, and conformity to, the law and our constitution.

“If Dr Ayu is to be removed from office, it must be done in accordance with the laws that set out the basis for such removal.

"In any event, you will all recall that the very body that is empowered by law to initiate this removal from office, has already passed a vote of confidence in him.

“Now, our nation is currently in the throes of a multidimensional crisis encompassing insecurity, economic meltdown, disunity and mutual mistrust and educational dislocations, to mention a few.

“I have a plan to address these issues and I have, graciously, been given the ticket to lead our great party in next year’s presidential elections, with the singular mandate to come and lead the efforts to cure these ills.

“It is in this light that I have reached out to every single member of our great party to join me in the massive undertaking required to reset the ship of state and help rebuild our country.

“And it is my fervent hope and prayer that every man and woman of goodwill will join hands with us to help rebuild and reposition our beloved country”, he stated.
