In Politics, Following Senator Iyorchia Ayu’s insistence not to resign his position as National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party,  the planned meeting by the National Executive Committee, of the party, slated for Thursday, September 8, 2022, is expected to be a stormy one as forces for and against Ayu in the party’s leadership are set to have an open confrontation at the meeting.

VOP News gathered  that ahead of the NEC meeting, some senior members of the National Working Committee,  were yesterday engaged in a marathon meeting to thwart moves to oust Ayu, as one of the items on the agenda of the meeting.

Credible sources disclose  that loyalists of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State are also exploring the option of dragging the party’s National Chairman before the court to challenge the process that brought Ayu into power.

You will recall that, Presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Governor Wike have been engaged in a cold war over plots to remove Senator Ayu as the party’s National Chairman.

But the PDP chairman has repeatedly dismissed calls for his removal from office, wondering where those championing such calls were when he and other Nigerians came together to form the party.

However, Governor Wike, explained that he has maintained a long-standing relationship with Ikpeazu and feels proud to associate with the Abia governor because he has changed the narrative about the state of infrastructure in Abia.
