Executive committee members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Igyorov Ward of Gboko local government area, Benue State, have disassociated themselves from the purported suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, by the ward.
The ward executives disclosed this in a disclaimer letter signed by the deputy chairman of PDP, Igyorov Ward, Ortese Helen, organising secretary, Atema Iorde, and 14 others and sent to Gboko Local Government’s chairman on Monday in Abuja.They said the suspension was made without due process and proper consultation with all relevant stakeholders.
They claimed that their signatures were forged to issue the “mischievous letter” announcing Ayu’s suspension.They, therefore, passed a vote of confidence on Ayu.
The letter reads in part: “The executive committee have never discussed in any of our meetings prior to election or post 2023 General Election about the conduct of the National Chairman.
