The party leaders in the ward cited Ayu’s anti-party activities as the cause for the suspension.

This information is found in a statement that was released on Sunday in Makurdi and was signed by 12 of the ward’s 17 officials.
“We observed with utmost dismay that Iyorchia Ayu who is the National Chairman of PDP worked against the success of the party in Igyorov Council Ward.

“It is on record that, he has also failed to pay his Annual Subscription Fees as provided under Section 8 Subsection 9 of the constitution of PDP 2017 (As Amended).

“Further investigation also revealed that, he did not vote during the: Governership and State Assembly Elections held on March 18, 2023,” the statement stated.
It went on to say that the PDP’s dismal showing in Igyorov Ward was caused by the discovery that the majority of his closest associates were employed by the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC).

According to the document, a vote of no confidence was taken against him as a result of the aforementioned, and he was suspended as a party member with immediate effect.

The statement claims that the ban began on March 24.

The party’s state publicity secretary, Mr. Bemgba Iortyom, acknowledged the legitimacy of the suspension letter when reached.

He claimed, however, that he had not received any official communication regarding the suspension.

“I saw the letter suspending Ayu just like any other person and cannot confirm the story any better.”

The PDP on March 23 suspended former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose; former president of the Senate, Pius Anyim; Prof Dennis Ityavyar and Aslam Aliyu.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, said decision was reached after an extensive review of the affairs of the party, pursuant to the provisions of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017).

The PDP also referred Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue, to the National Disciplinary Committee over his reported involvement in anti-party activities.
