The PDP bigwigs have at least one common demand made many times to the party’s leadership: the immediate resignation of the national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

- Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi
- Plateau ex-governor, Jonah Jang
- Gombe ex-governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo
- Ekiti ex-governor, Ayo Fayose

- Cross River ex-governor, Donald Duke
- Chief Bode George
- Chief Dan Orbih
- Mohammed Adoke
