Media aide says only PDP NEC can suspend Ayu

National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu cannot be suspended by his ward, his media adviser Simon Imobo-Tswam has said.

TMY Newspapers recalls that on Sunday, the executive members of Igyorov ward, Gboko LGA of Benue state, passed a vote of no confidence on Ayu over alleged anti-party activities.

The local exco had claimed that Ayu worked against the success of the PDP in his ward and did not vote in the March 18 governorship and the house of assembly election.

But in a swift reaction through a statement issued on Monday, Imobo-Tswam said only the national executive committee (NEC), has the powers to suspend his principal Ayu.

“Iyorchia Ayu has not been suspended by his ward. Some members of the exco are only being teleguided by political gamblers to cause mischief and nothing more,” the statement reads.

“The chairman, his deputy, and legal adviser didn’t sign. The 14th person on the list didn’t sign too. She was at NKST Ambighir for the Holy Communion,” he said.

“Up till now, about nine members of the ward exco are still being held hostage in a location in Makurdi for obvious reasons. And expectedly, their mobile numbers have been switched off. It is instructive.

“The general public is hereby advised to ignore rumours to this heinous effect. Those behind the plot are only investing in expensive illusions.”
