In his remarks, Dr Ayu said that The PDP remained the only party in the country, describing the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a “contraption”. An excerpt of his words below:

 “PDP is back to rescue Nigeria from the terrible mess we have been in the last six years.

“Many people imagine that this convention will lead to the break up for the PDP. They were dreaming in wonderland. Their dreams were misplaced.

“Those who have lost hope should know that Nigeria is not a divided country. A small group of people decided to divide Nigeria. PDP will come back, unite our people, put them together, North and South, East and West.

“We will move ahead to develop this country. We did it before. We are going to do it again.

“I believe the other party can never hold a convention. Even they cannot hold State Congress. They have produced 92 state chairmen for 36 states. How can they hold a successful convention which the PDP has done? We are waiting for them. This is a challenge to them. This is a quit notice. PDP is back and is taking back the country to develop it.”
