Iyorchia Ayu Remains the National Chairman our Party – PDP Dismisses Suspension Report as Fake News

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed the fictitious reports suggesting that its party’s National chairman Iyorchia Ayu has been suspended by the PDP.

The party through a statement shared on its official Twitter stated that the reports are false and a product of the imagination of mischief makers.

Part of the statement read: The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)has been drawn to a fictitious report being circulated in a section of the social media suggesting that the National Chairman of our great Party, His Excellency, Iyorchia Ayu has been suspended by the NWC

Such a report is completely false and a product of the imagination of mischief makers with the intent to destabilize our Party, create an impression of crisis within our ranks and mislead the unsuspecting members of the public.

For clarity, our National Chairman, is on a short vacation outside of the country and he officially transmitted power to the Deputy National Chairman (North), His Excellency Amb. Umar Iliya Damagum, to perform his duties in Acting Capacity, pending his return, in line with the provision of the Constitution of the PDP 2017 (as amended)

It is instructive to state that the INEC was duly informed on the absence of our National Chairman and that Amb. Damagun will be performing the duties of the National Chairman in Acting Capacity pending Sen. Dr. Ayu’s return.

For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP and the NWC is united and Sen. Dr. Iyorchia Ayu remains the National Chairman.

The NWC, therefore, urges all members of our great Party, our teeming supporters, the media, and the general public to disregard the said report as FAKE NEWS.
