‘I support Ayu’s Suspension, He Presided Over The Colossal Failure Of The Party – Wike

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has noted that the suspension of the Peoples Democratic national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, was because members are angry that the party lost woefully during the February 25 and March 18 General elections.

During an interview on a programme on  Channels Television “Sunrise Daily” on Monday March 27, Wike made the statement saying he supported Ayu’s suspension.

According to him, the people rejected PDP because Ayu refused to resign from the party’s chairmanship position.

Sources has it that The Executive Committee of the PDP in Igyorov Ward of Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State, suspended Ayu on Sunday, after passing a vote of no confidence on him for anti-party activities.

According to Wike, he asserted that Ayu traded PDP’s victory at the polls for his interest.

“It is only in this country that someone who has lost woefully during the general elections still wants to occupy the position of Chairmanship in PDP.

“As a national chairman of the people, Ayu lost his ward, your local government; not only did he take a distant third, you(Ayu) also lost presidential and governorship elections.

“I am in support of Ayu’s suspension in Benue.

“If he left before the elections, they would have said his leaving was the reason PDP lost the election; thank God he presided over the colossal failure of the party during the general elections.

“We cannot have the party in the hands of persons without any political contribution to the party”, he stated.
