Rivers State governor has knocked Peoples Democratic Party chairman Iyorchia Ayu over his statement that he can deny Benue State governor Samuel Ortom the chance to run for the senate. Wike who was speaking in Port Harcourt Sunday said Ayu was ungrateful, adding that the PDP chairman wouldn’t dare stop any candidate from contesting on the platform of the party. “I heard when he said he could have stopped Ortom from running for election. You see how ungrateful a human being can be. This was the same Governor Ortom who pleaded with us to say I can take the risk of letting Ayu become national chairman, without being greedy. “The agreement by PDP governors was that no national chairman should come from where a governor comes from. We agreed on that, but Ortom came. And as a man we respect, he said I want to promote my people in national politics. We said okay, in your honour we let him (Ayu) be. “This is a man who never campaigned anywhere, never printed a poster to be national chairman. Even money they gave him to print posters, he never printed any. And he (Ayu) is the one saying if he wanted to stop who brought him, a man who stood as a guarantor for him, he could have done so. That is the corruption we are talking about.
“He has now come into the office, seen money, seen power, now he can open his mouth to say he could have stopped Ortom. And he said he can also stop any contestant now. We dare him. I dare Ayu to stop any contestant if he has what it takes.”
