The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday passed a vote of no confidence in the National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu and also suspended him with immediate effect.
Ayu was suspended from his Igyorov Ward in Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State.
The Ward Secretary, Mr Vangeryina Dooyum, who addressed a news conference on behalf of the Ward Chairman, Kashi Philip, said: “It is on record that, he has also failed to pay his annual party subscription fees.
“Further investigation also revealed that, he did not vote during the Governorship and State Assembly Elections held on March 18, 2023.”
Dooyum, who described the anti-party activities of Ayu as unacceptable, disclosed that It was also discovered that most of his closest allies worked for the opposition party — the All Progressiives Congress, and hence, the abysmal performance of PDP in Igyorov Ward.
“In view of the foregoing, we hereby pass a vote of no confidence in Dr Iyorchia Ayu and suspend him as a member of our party with immediate effect. The suspension takes effect from March 24, 2023.”
