The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Igyorov Ward of Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State has suspended the National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
Ayu was suspended by the executive members of the ward for anti-party activities after passing a vote of no confidence on him.
In the suspension letter addressed to the State Chairman of PDP, Benue State Chapter, the ward executive said the decision to suspend Ayu with effect from March 24, 2023, was taken after a review of the conduct of the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections as well as the Governorship and States Houses of Assembly elections.
The Executive Committee of the ward in the letter said, “We observed with utmost dismay that, Dr. IYORCHIA AYU who is the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) worked against the success of the party in Igyorov Council Ward.
“It is on record that, he has also failed to pay his Annual Subscription Fees as provided under Section 8 Subsection 9 of the constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 2017 (As Amended).
“Further investigation also revealed that he did not vote during the Governorship and State Assembly Elections held on 18th of March, 2023.
“It was also discovered that, most of his closest allies worked for the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and hence, the abysmal performance of the PDP in Igyorov Ward.
“In view of the foregoing, we hereby pass a Vote of No Confidence on DR. IYORCHIA AYU and suspend him as a member of our party with immediate effect.”
