BREAKING: #Wike Mocks Iyorchia #Ayu After Being Replaced As PDP National Chairman



BREAKING: #Wike Mocks Iyorchia #Ayu After Being Replaced As PDP National Chairman—The Genius Media Nigeria reports Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has celebrated the ousting of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu.

This online news paper earlier how PDP announced the party’s Deputy National Chairman, (North) Umar Iliya Damagum, as Ayu’s replacement on Tuesday.

The party said Damagum would immediately assume office as the Acting National Chairman of the PDP pending the determination of the case in court.

“In-line with the recent Court Order from the Benue State High Court, restraining the National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, from parading himself as Chairman of the party, the Deputy National Chairman, North, Amb Iliya Umar Damagum has assumed office as the Acting National Chairman of the PDP, pending the determination of the case in court,” a statement issued by the party today read.

Reacting to the development, Wike, while commissioning the Trans-Kalabari Road Phase 1 project in the Degema Local Government Area of Rivers State today, said those plotting evil against them are now receiving the heat.

Wike said he had told Ayu that he will vacate office ad PDP national chairman and it has now happened. “You see how God works? All those people who were plotting evil against us, they are now the ones suffering it,” he said.

The Rivers State governor also warned those excited about the emergence of a new governor in the state that he is still in charge until May 29.

“So, if you do anything, I’ll pepper you,” he added. “You see how I peppered them now? Are they not the ones suffering it now? Ayu said nobody can suspend him, but today he has packed up from the office,” Wike said.

He added: “We have an acting chairman now. I told him, ‘You will go. Whether you like it or not, you will go.’ Those lawyers telling you that the ward has no power to suspend you, that it’s only NEC, then you don’t understand.

“When you came, it was the ward that suspended Secondus, and you went and took office. It is now that you know that it’s only NEC. Let me tell you, since they’ve not told you, the courts have struck off that section out of our constitution to say ‘NEC only.”

TGM reports that Ayu’s ordeal started after the Executive Committee of the PDP in Igyorov Ward, Gboko Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State, suspended him from the party.

Ayu had been at loggerheads with PDP’s five aggrieved governors, popularly known as the G5 or the Integrity Group.

The G5 led by Governor Wike include Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom, Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu).

The party chieftains were against Ayu remaining as the PDP national chairman, while the party also fielded a northerner, Atiku Abubakar, as its presidential candidate in the just concluded election.
