The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Igyorov Ward in Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State, on Sunday announced the suspension of the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.
The suspension of Senator Ayu, who was accused of anti-party activities, was contained in a resolution by the Ward.
This was revealed at the end of their ward meeting.
The resolution was read by the Secretary of Igyorov Council Ward, Banger Dooyum.
The suspension of Ayu came few days after the National Working Committee of the PDP dragged the Benue State Governor, Dr. Samuel Ortom, before the National Disciplinary Committee of the party and suspended former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, and erstwhile Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, among others.
Ayu’s suspension on Sunday followed a vote of no confidence passed in him by his ward.
The resolution said: “The People’s Democratic Party Executive Committee of Igyorov council ward of Gboko local government area in Benue state has passed a vote of no confidence on the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu and suspended him from the party.”
Dooyum, while reading the resolution of the Ward Executive, said: “He (Ayu) was involved in anti-party activities making the PDP to lose at his ward and local government along with his allies who also didn’t vote at the Governorship Election.”
He was also accused of not paying his annual dues as enshrined by the party’s constitution.
