The national chairman of the main opposition’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyorchia “Ayu must go” protest rocks Kaduna State, under the guise of ‘Northern Youths.’
The protest was staged around midday on Friday, right in front of the State Secretariat of the party, opposite NDA Bus Stop in Kaduna City, by irate youths between fifteen years and above.
Numbering about 30, all the protesters neatly bearing placards went round with different inscriptions in their hands, reading, “Ayu Must Go,” amongst others.
State officials, however, denied any links with the protesting youth when contacted, saying that not even a letter to the party to that regard was received from them prior to the action.
The officials also denied knowing or addressing the “Ayu Must Go” protesters, also adding that, they did not enter the premises of the party Secretariat but only in front of the building.
Efforts to speak to the furious protesters were futile, because of the inability to know the leader of the group allegedly sponsored by unknown hands of a politician.
A number of journalists, mostly from electronic media, who were invited for the coverage of the protest, were also on ground at the time our reporter stormed the scene, by accident.
Recalled that, the Hullabaloos concerning Ayu must be dropped as PDP chairman, championed by Rivers State Governor, Barr. Nyesom Wike, has been in the front burner in the national news.
