Ayu's suspension: PDP suspends Igyorov Ward Exco with immediate effect

The State Working Committee, (SWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Benue State has ordered the immediate suspension of the Ward Executive Committee of the party in Igyorov Council Ward of Gboko Local Government Area, LGA, of the state. 

It would be recalled that 12 members of the 17 member Executive Committee led by the Chairman, Philip kashi and Secretary, Vangeryina Dooyum had on March 24, 2023 passed a vote of no confidence on the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu who is a member of the party in the Ward, and ordered his immediate suspension for alleged anti party activities. 

That order was however countered in 24 hours by another faction of the Committee led by the Vice Chairman, Helen Ortese who disowned the suspension order and asked the general public to disregard it. 

Sensing the danger of allowing the factions to continue to operate at cross purposes, the SWC at the end of its Extra Ordinary Meeting held Thursday in Makurdi resolved to suspend the Committee. 

The resolution which was signed by members of the SWC and made available to newsmen read, "the SWC deliberated on and reviewed the recent activities and matters of the administration of the affairs of the party in Igyorov Council Ward, which have raised and aggravated tensions within the party in the area with possible threats of violence and break down of law and order. 

"It is therefore, the resolution of the SWC that pursuant to the powers conferred on it by Section 59 (4) of the Constitution of the PDP as Amended 2017, and does order that the Executive Committee of the POP in Igyorov Council Ward is hereby suspended for a period of one month pending necessary action that shall be taken to restore sanity, harmony, law and order in the party in that area. 

"The State Working Committee shall during this period administer the affairs of the Party in Igyorov Council Ward in the best interest of the party, discipline, growth and success." 

The SWC directed the Committee to hand over all documents or other items in their possession belonging to the Party to the State Executive Committee of the party with immediate effect adding that they should henceforth cease to act in the offices, which they held prior to their suspension. 

They noted that the "action is taken to forestall possible breakdown of law and order in the PDP in Igyorov Council Ward."
