Ayu clears air on resigning as PDP national chairman



The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Iyiochia Ayu, has denied reports that he has resigned.

Ayu insisted he has neither resigned nor does he have any plan to do so in the foreseeable future.

This was contained in a tweet by his Media Aide, Simon Imobo-Tswam, on Monday.

The tweet read, “The PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyiochia Ayu, has not resigned and has no plan of resigning.


“For clarity and emphasis, he was elected for a tenure of four years.”

There has been pressure on Ayu to resign in line with an alleged agreement he entered into prior to his emergence to step down if the presidential candidate emerges from the north.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar won the party’s presidential ticket with Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike coming second.
