PDP NEC Decides Ayu’s Fate Thursday

Aide Gives Update On Status Of Iyorchia Ayu As PDP Chairman

The National Executive Committee (NEC) and Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are expected to meet on Thursday to decide the fate of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

The board members will decide if Ayu should remain in office or step down following the emergence of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar who is also from the north. Ayu had reportedly vowed to step down from office if the presidential candidate of the party emerge from the North. The PDP National Chairman, however, after the emergence of Atiku insisted that he would not step down. This is despite the call by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike for Ayu to resign from office. Ayu had stated that he would not allow children (whose names he did not reveal) to destroy the party. Governor Wike in his reaction to Ayu’s statement described him as an ingrate who was brought to become the National Chairman of the party. Ayu, in a statement released on Friday, said he would not react to Governor Wike’s comment. The Thursday meeting will be preceded on Wednesday by that of the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) and the National Caucus.
