The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the National Chairman’s homestate, Iyorchia Ayu have denied the letter of suspension, saying their signatures were forged.
In a letter addressed to the PDP chairman, the executive members of the Igyorov ward of Benue State have revealed they did not endorse Ayu’s suspension.
The executives said the suspension was not in line with the due process which was not observed in line with the party constitution.
They further urged all PDP members and supporters to disregard the suspension, adding that their signatures were forged.
According to them, they have no knowledge of the letter and have not authorized anyone to issue same on their behalf, even as they continue to have faith in the leadership of Dr Iyorchia Ayu as National Chairman of PDP.
“The purported signatures on the letter are forged and no member of PDP Executive Committee of Igyorov Council Ward has signed that letter nor caused it to be signed on his or her behalf. The names of the Executive Committee Members are wrongly written and spelled which shows the desperation of the mischief makers. The content of the purported letter itself is contradictory to the holding of the presidential and National Assembly Elections on March 25, 2023, while the letter itself is dated 24th March 2023.
“The letter was written before the purported Commission of the offence which shows clearly that it is the handwork of the mischief makers.”
While making reference to a provision of Article 57(7) of PDP Constitution, they insisted that they lacked the powers to suspend a national Chairman and went ahead to pass a vote of confidence on Ayu.
