Atiku vs Wike: 15 Out Of 19 PDP NWC Members Plot Against Iyorchia Ayu
About 15 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) have allegedly resolved to back calls for the removal of the party’s National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
According to Vanguard, some members of the NWC from the Southern part of the country expressed the opinion that the party’s National Chairman could have handled the PDP’s crisis better at the NWC meeting, presided over by Ayu at the National Secretariat.
Though the meeting dwelt heavily on the agenda to be presented to the party’s caucus and NEC, the party’s effort to reconcile aggrieved members also featured.
They reportedly resolved to pass a vote of no confidence on the National Chairman.
