In an exclusive chat with Legit.ng, Ehilebo said that despite the legitimacy of the request for balance, the fact is that it goes against the party’s ethos.
According to him, the PDP is a national party with a national spread, not a regional party, and must follow its constitution in all its decisions and actions.
He also warned that if the agitators continue to threaten the peace and unity of the party and it loses the 2023 election, all hell will be let loose in ensuring that those behind the loss also lose out in their states.

Ehilebo, who is no 33 member on the list of the PDP campaign council, said party members and leaders should think first about the national interest as against individual interest.
He said that if they feel slighted over any issue, the onus is on them to make their case constitutionally as against going against the rules and casting aspersion on the party.
He also recalled how the party was almost destroyed in 2016 over Sheriff’s saga, cautioning that such should not be allowed to happen.

The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike and four other governors including governors Seyi Makinde, Samuel Ortom, Ifeanyi Ugwanyi and Okezie Ikpeazu have been at the forefront of the campaign for Ayu’s removal.
Despite their agitation, Ayu had insisted that he would go nowhere until when asked by the party NEC to resign.
Up until now, it’s not clear yet what the aggrieved party members will do, even as the party on Thursday night unveiled its campaign council, announcing Aminu Tambuwal as its campaign director general.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the campaign against the continued stay of the former Senate president, Iyorchia Ayu as the national chairman of the PDP intensified on Friday, September 16, in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state.
It was reported that the party's state chapter insisted that Ayu's resignation as the chairman of the party would pave way for a true reconciliation among the aggrieved members of the party.
The Oyo PDP, however, lauded the inclusion of Governor Seyi Makinde in the Presidential Campaign Council of the party.
