    PDP Forum Passes Vote Of No Confidence On Ayu, Others


    Oct 5, 2022

    The forum of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates and aspirants has passed a no-confidence vote on some members of the National Working Committee (NWC).

    Naija News reports that the forum said the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu; National Secretary, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, and the Deputy National Chairman, North, Umar Damagum, cannot be trusted.

    The group also said it has petitioned the national executive committee of the party and demanded either the resignation or removal of the three NWC members within 48 hours.

    In a statement by the forum’s Coordinator, Chris Ogbu and Secretary, Dauda Yusuf, they threatened to institute a suit against the party chiefs if they failed to comply with their demand within 48 hours.

    The group accused the party leadership of extorting aspirants during the congresses, primaries, and special National Convention of the party.

    It further alleged fraudulent substitution of candidates after the party primaries.

    Ogbu said, “Sharing the money paid for nomination forms instead of utilizing it for the prosecution of the historic 2023 election of the party is very provocative and indicting to the image of the party.”

    A Northerner Will Replace Ayu If He Resigns – Former PDP Secretary

    A former PDP National Secretary, Emmanuel Agbo, has said that a northerner would take over if Ayu decides to resign as the National Chairman of the party.

    Speaking during an interview on Arise TV on Tuesday, Agbo said Damagun will take over from Ayu based on the constitution of the party.

    The presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar and the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike and his allies over time have been at loggerheads.

    The camp of Governor Wike in their request to support the presidential ambition of Atiku called for Ayu to resign from office.

    Governor Wike’s camp is against Northerners taking over major positions in the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
