The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has mocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the current crisis rocking the party.
According to Keyamo, PDP has lost control, but comes every day to say it wants to rescue Nigeria.
The spokesman for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council took the swipe at the PDP late Wednesday in a tweet.
This came after the camp of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Wednesday, pulled out of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (insert hyperlink), insisting that the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, must resign before they could participate in campaign activities.
Keyamo tweeted, “The PDP that’s in crises because of its inability to control its billowing umbrella gathers everyday and the first thing you hear them say is that they want to ‘rescue’ Nigeria; like a teenager whose legs cannot find the clutch of a car wanting to drive a trailer! ‘No be juju be that?”
The PDP’s crisis continually deepens as the call for Ayu’s resignation continually caused controversy. Wike and the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, have been spearheading this call, with Atiku insisting that Ayu cannot be forced to resign.
In respect to this, Atiku said, “On the calls for the resignation or removal from office of our national chairman, however, I must reiterate what I have said severally in public and in private; the decision for Dr. Iyorchia Ayu to resign from office is personal to Dr. Ayu and, neither I nor anyone else can make that decision for him.”
