I am still the PDP National Chairman – Ayu refutes report of suspension

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, has revealed why he’s not been publicly participating in affairs of the party.

He said he took a well-deserved two-week leave on the 21st of June, 2022.

Ayu said this in reaction to report that he has been suspended the party over misappropriation of funds.

PDP National Chairman in a statement by Special Adviser on Communication, Simon Imobo-Tswam, Wednesday said he will be back next week to resume duties, specifically on July 6, 2022.

Ayu who described himself as a stickler for due process said he formally handed over to the Deputy National Chairman (North), Umar Damagun.

He noted that the Deputy National Chairman has held forth admirably since that day.

The statement partly read “It was in that acting capacity that he (Damagun) today, presided over the inauguration of the Osun State Gubernatorial Campaign Council, headed by the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State, H.E. Douye Diri.

“If not that the authors of the mischievous and baseless Facebook posts were out to serve nefarious interests, they would have heard when the acting national chairman, Amb. Damagun, said during the ceremony today: “On behalf of my able National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, I hereby inaugurate you.”

“The general public is, therefore, advised to ignore the mischievous social media publications as they are purely the work of mischief-makers and idle minds”.
