PDP removes Ayu from his position as National Chair
Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP’s national chairman, has been placed on administrative leave by the organization.
The party’s Ward Executive in the Igyorov Ward of the Gboko Local Government Area, or LGA, of the state of Benue implemented Ayu’s suspension.
Dr. Ayu was suspended by the Executive for alleged anti-party activities, according to Mr. Vangeryina Dooyum, the ward secretary, who spoke to the media on behalf of Kashi Philip, the ward chairman, on Sunday.
The Secretary claimed that after reviewing the National Chairman’s behavior at the conclusion of the recently completed general elections, the leadership decided to suspend him.
“We observed with the utmost dismay that Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, who is the PDP’s National Chairman, worked against the success of the party in Igyorov Council Ward,” he claimed.
According to Section 8 (9) of the PDP 2017 constitution, “It is on record that he has also failed to pay his annual subscription fees” (As Amended).
He did not cast a ballot in the March 18, 2023, governorship and state assembly elections, according to further investigation.
The PDP performed horribly in Igyorov Ward, as evidenced by the fact that the majority of his closest allies were employed by the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC).
Considering the aforementioned, we hereby pass a vote of no confidence in Dr. Iyorchia Ayu and suspend him from the party with immediate effect. Beginning on March 24, 2023, the suspension will be in place.
