Bukola Saraki, the former senate President of Nigeria has finally spoken up on PDP ongoing crisis. He has stated his reason for being silent for quite a while.

Saraki is a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). PDP has been battling leadership crisis, particularly the aggressive calls for the resignation of its National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, specifically led by governors Nyesom Wike and Seyi Makinde of Rivers State and Oyo State respectively.

Wike’s camp had recently pulled out of the campaign council of the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku, who seemed to be boxed in a corner, being a notable figure in the party, had not taken side on the call for the resignation of Ayu.

Rather, Atiku maintained that the party’s constitution must be followed. Atiku also recently said that Ayu could not be forced to resign. This is as Wike continues to drag the party even by holding media parleys, alleging bribery and raising several allegations.

Members of the PDP has based their aggravations on regional reasons. They call for the resignation of Ayu because they wanted the South to a hold a position in the party’s leadership.

Reacting via Facebook post on his verified page, Saturday, Saraki said, “I just returned from my annual vacation and went straight to Akwa Ibom to join the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the state’s creation.

“As I moved around the country in the past few days, I got the feeling that many people are concerned over my seeming silence on recent developments in our party, the PDP. My response is that there are times to speak and be heard and there are times when working silently behind the scene is more productive. This is such a time.”

Throwing weight behind Atiku, Saraki said, “The PDP and Atiku Abubakar remain the best option for Nigerians in the 2023 polls!”
