The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Iyorchia Ayu, on Thursday asked popular journalist, Dele Momodu, to take his presidential bid to members of the party.

Ayu a former President of the Senate told the Ovation Magazine publisher that members hold the ace with little or nothing the leadership of the PDP can do to help him achieve his dreams.

He said “For you to run for office, you must have a strong platform but the first responsibility I will charge you to do is to work hard and build a strong party which we can go into battle with.

“For your personal ambition like all other candidates, I wish you well, I wish you the best.

“There will be a level playing ground for all aspirants; we don’t have a special candidate, we don’t have preferred candidate, the party members will decide who will contest any office”.

“If at the end of the day, party members vote for you that you are the one they want, the party will stand behind you. You have to go out and work out there among the party members across the country because the party leadership will not do it for you. Our job is to try and provide the necessary mechanism”, he added.

Momodu on Thursday afternoon visited Ayu at the PDP National Secretariat in Abuja during which formally presented his letter of intent to contest for the presidential ticket of the party.
