According to Clark, in a statement made available to Journalists in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Tuesday, said Ayu has proven to be unfit to be the PDP national chairman.
The elder statesman, who is also the leader of Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), according to leadership reports, said despite the efforts of the Convention Planning Committee, outcome of the primary election leaves much to be desired.
The statement reads in part: “I decided to issue this Press Release because of the worrying occurrences in our polity vis-a-vis the dappled Party Primaries being conducted, across the Country; the reported outrageous financial inducements of delegates and the cynical dollarization of the electoral process.
“These happenings give strong warnings of, more likely, deleterious outcomes of the 2023 General Elections, mainly the Presidential, and their aftermaths.
“Most disturbing is what happened at the Special National Convention of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Abuja, on Saturday, 28th May 2022. I followed the live broadcasts of the proceedings, keenly, until about 12.30 am on Sunday, the 29th.
