ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – The Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has claimed that Iyorchia Ayu, the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), worked for the victory of Bola Tinubu as the president-elect.
Governor Umahi said this during the commissioning of remodeled community secondary school, Okoro nu Odo, in Rivers State, on Monday.
Umahi who was in Rivers on the invitation of Governor Nyesom Wike for the project commissioning in the state, insisted that Tinubu must know that Ayu worked for him so he could integrate him into the next administration.
”I want to also thank the suspended Chairman of the PDP. He did very well because if he had accepted to resign, it would have been very difficult for the APC. So he is our man, and I commend him very, very well.
“And I am begging Wike that they should lift the suspension so that he can suspend many more of their leaders. We love what he has done, and so we commend him.
“I think Asiwaju must know that he worked for him and must also integrate him into the next administration,” Umahi said.
Recall that Ayu was suspended by the Benue State branch of the PDP. But Ayu had described suspension as an exercise in futility.
