PDP Speaks On Court Order Barring Ayu As National Chairman

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will react to the ruling barring its National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, from office, as soon as it gets the court order.

Recall that a High Court sitting in Makurdi presided over by Justice Wilfred Kpochin issued an interim order restraining Ayu from parading himself as the PDP chairman.

The order of the court was issued on Monday following an ex-parte application brought before the court by a PDP member, Conrad Utaan.

The application was supported by a 15-paragraph affidavit and three exhibits including the applicant’s PDP membership card, receipt of payment of dues and a copy of the resolution of the PDP Executive of the Igyorov Council Ward of Gboko Local Government Area, suspending Ayu.


Reacting to the development in a chat with reporters in Abua, PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba said the party is ready to interrogate the sequence of events leading to Ayu’s suspension at a meeting of its National Working Committee.


He said Nigerians will know the decision of the party on the order barring Ayu as chairman after the NWC meeting.

He said, “It is when we see the court order that we can react. We will react appropriately when we get the order.

When we get the details of the court order, the National Working Committee of the party will consider it and we will make our decision known to Nigerians.”
