Senator Ayu Speaks On Meeting With Gov Wike



Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has debunked social media rumours that he met with Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

WITHIN NIGERIA reports that Wike is the leader of the Integrity Group and the G-5 PDP governors who have called for Ayu’s removal or resignation as a condition for supporting the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Ayu, on the other hand, has remained steadfast, insisting that he will only leave his position when his tenure expires and that he will not be forced out by the disgruntled governors.

On Wednesday, an image surfaced, with many claiming that Ayu had met with Nyesom Wike to resolve the crisis rocking the main opposition party.

However, the PDP Chairman’s Special Adviser on Media and Communications, Simon Imobo-Tswam, responded quickly, saying there was no meeting between him and the Governor in Port Harcourt or anywhere else in Nigeria today.

Mischief makers, according to Ayu’s media aide, spread the image with a false narrative.

Imobo-Tswam said; “Dr. Ayu states clearly that:

1. He never travelled to Port Harcourt and 2. He has not set eyes on Gov. Wike lately.

The photograph trending on the social media is an old one. The story accompanying it is, therefore, false and mischievous.

He also adds, for the purpose of factual accuracy, that he is in no way embattled.

The National Chairman is, rather, enjoying the New Year Break with his family.

The general public and, especially the PDP Family, is advised to ignore the story and focus on the historic task ahead of the party next month.
