The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Iyorchia Ayu has been suspended by the party.
The suspension of Ayu was effected by the Ward Executive of the party in Igyorov Ward of Gboko Local Government Area, LGA, of Benue state.
Kashi Philip, the Ward Chairman, explained that Ayu was suspended by the Executive for alleged anti party activities.
Ayu is also accused of not paying his annual dues as enshrined by the party’s constitution.
Twelve out of the seventeen exco members signed the documents endorsing his suspension.
They also alleged that the PDP chieftain did not vote during the governorship and state assembly elections held on the 18th of March, 2023.
According to them, most of Ayu’s closest allies worked for the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) which resulted in the abysmal performance of the PDP in Igyorov Ward.
