Must read

The Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday, October 14, took some drastic decisions amid the party’s internal unrest.

Ban on inflammatory remarks from Wike, others

During a meeting held at the PDP’s national secretariat in Abuja on Friday, October 14, 2022, the leadership of the BoT banned members of the opposition party from making further inflammatory remarks.

In recent times, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has made certain allegations of bribery against the PDP’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and remarks seen as not so palatable directed at Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate.

But in a communique issued during the Friday meeting read by Adolphus Wabara, the “BoT called on all party leaders and persons close to them to desist forthwith from making further inflammatory remarks or press interviews”.

Ayu to resign after 2023 elections

As part of its resolutions, the board also asked Ayu to make sure he resigns after the 2023 elections.

Ayu, as well as other leading members of the party, were urged to “match words with action and where commitments are made, to unconditionally fulfill same.”
