The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday passed a vote of confidence on the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu.
The party’s NEC passed a vote of confidence on Ayu at its 97th meeting held in Abuja on Thursday.
This is despite the calls for Ayu to resign from office by Nyesom Wike’s administration in Rivers State.
In order to maintain a balance of power, Wike has asked that the party chairman role be assumed by a Southerner.
Speaking at the NEC meeting, the party’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar remarked that disagreements among party members are common.
Atiku used the occasion to thank party NEC members for their assistance during the presidential primary contest.
The PDP presidential candidate thanked Walid Jibril, the party’s outgoing chairman of the Board of Trustees, for his contributions.
Prior to the 2023 election, Atiku reaffirmed his commitment to addressing the disagreements and internal conflicts within the party.
He suggested that the party’s crisis be resolved in accordance with the PDP’s constitution, rules, and regulations.
The former vice president urged party members to give all Nigerians a platform to realize their dreams, both communal and personal.
As a result, Atiku urged all party members to ensure that all differences were settled within the organization.
