Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has advised the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu, to either resign his position or beg for understanding as the party’s internal crisis lingers.

The governor gave the advise on Friday, at an emergency Executive Council meeting held at Government House, Makurdi.

Ortom again confirmed that Ayu had promised to resign if a presidential candidate emerged from the northern region.

He therefore stated that for Ayu to restore his integrity, “he either should follow the path of honor and resign or plead for understanding.”

The governor noted that the PDP will not be allowed to fall apart despite the internal wrangling, as he expressed confidence that the main opposition remained the party to beat in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

According to him, the PDP is only waiting to take over the mantle of leadership come 2023 following the abysmal performance of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
