EKO HOT BLOG reports that the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorcha Ayu, on Thursday said that the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, would not leave the party as was being rumoured.
Ayu gave the assurance to party members in Benin, at a rally organised in his honour by the Edo Government, where he described Obaseki as an asset to the PDP.

He also said that many people who left the PDP were already coming back, and many more would still do so.
The national chairman promised speedy resolution of the crisis rocking the Edo chapter of the party.
According to Ayu, the people, from next week, will see what the leadership of the party at the national level will do to resolve the crisis in Edo state.
He said that he was married to an Edo woman who had children for him and could not allow the party in the state to fall apart.
“My brothers and sisters, divided we fall, united we stand. For many years, it was difficult to bring democracy to Nigeria because we politicians were divided,” he said.
Ayu said he led the party in 1999 to ‘conquer’ the presidential villa, and was poised to take the party back there in 2023.
He promised to go after governors who left the party with its mandates to reclaim them.
