Northern PDP Elders’ Support Group warn it’s southern counterpart to thread with care



A group under the auspices of the Northern PDP Elders’ Support Group on Thursday advised other elders in the party especially those of southern extraction to thread with care so they don’t become a tool of overheating political activities that could hinder the victory of the party in 2023 elections. 

National Co-ordinator of the group, Nasiru Aliyu Sadauki has revealed Thursday.

To these elders, the group said, there must be a peaceful and amicable way of ending the ongoing campaign seeking the removal of the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu in order to give peace a chance, hence, there is the need for all the stakeholders to sheath their swords for PDP to progress, unite ahead of inauguration of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council.

Nasiru Aliyu Sadauki stated this in a statement after a meeting of members, stakeholders and goodwill ambassadors of the group at ‘2022-2023 PDP Community Based Mobilisation Vanguard and presentation of manual and guide for Atiku/Okowa campaign support groups in Kaduna.

The development was aimed to serve as encouragement for effective enlightenment and on-the-spot awareness in selected states in the North.

According to Sadauki, the party leaders should face important issues of economic condition, insecurity, poverty, educational crisis and other challenges that are threatening Nigeria national unity and cohesion as a people rather than majoring in minor issue like calling for the removal of the chairman.

There are issue on ground that need leaders to make sacrifice, offer solutions and relief to the public. No sensible party supporter will promote and seek Ayu’s exit in this time of expected cooperation, unity and understanding in the party. 

Nigerians are tired of such media display of arrogance characters by certain group of political elites in the country. Let us face issue and rebuke or disregard any political class who is more interested in seeming public sympathy rather than act to help rebuild the nation.

Sadauki lamented that Nigerians wake up daily with news of unpleasant happenings in the country especially the killing, maiming and kidnapping of our fellow Nigerians including women and children which the All Progressives Congress (APC)’ led government has failed to nip in the bud. To our surprise, our party is talking about “Ayu must go” and “South will not agree” which are issues that could be resolved amicably behind curtains.

They pointed out that the PDP crisis is surely a setup, intended to destroy every good and positive transformation of the Ayu-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the party adding that those fanning the ember of disunity, cohesion and progress of PDP are doing so to create confusion that may make Nigerians reconsider APC.

“We call on the PDP supporters within and outside the country to unite and support the leadership of the party under Dr. Iyorchia Ayu to collectively rescue and rebuild our country from the ruins of APC.”

The northern elders said the inability of APC led the government to resolve the lingering issue of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) alone is enough to see the reason for all of us to work together with the party leadership to ensure APC is sent parking in 2023.

“We however advise Ayu-led National Executive Council (NEC) to immediately swing into action to unite the party before the commencement of the campaign to ensure we offer greater hope for the survival of Nigeria ahead of the 2023 elections.” The northern elders Concludes
