Ayu ‘shortchanged’ Wike, says Jang

The former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, had a “private arrangement” with the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, to shortchange Governor Nyesom Wike and other aspirants at the party presidential primary.

Speaking after the meeting of the Mr Wike-led group in Port Harcourt, Mr Jang said: “For the National Chairman, Ayu, to go and embrace Aminu Tambuwal, calling him the hero of the convention which means there was a private arrangement that was done with Tambuwal to shortchange other contestants, including Governor Nyesom Wike.”

He further described Ayu as a “referee“ who helped “one side scored a goal” and then “blow the whistle”.

Tambuwal, who was one of the contestants at the primaries, has been named Chairman Atiku Presidential Campaign Committee. Mr. Wike and his allies on the other hand, have rejected serving in the committee until Ayu resigns his position.
