Senator Iyorchia Ayu has received a vote of confidence from the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Executive Council, which suggests that the party chairman won’t be resigning anytime soon.

At the BoT and NEC meeting that took place in Abuja on Thursday, Minority Leader of the House of Representatives Ndudi Elumelu filed a motion for the vote of confidence in the PDP’s National Working Committee (NWC).

The vote was endorsed by a Kwara State-based NEC member, and Adolphus Wabara, the acting PDP BoT chairman, presided over it.

There have been several calls by the southern caucus of the PDP for Ayu to step down for a southerner, however, with the vote of confidence, it is almost certain that Ayu will not be vacating the seat.

In reaction to the development, the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, said the party is determined to resolve its disagreements.

According to him, such disagreements as have rocked the party in recent times, are normal in a family.

The former vice president added that the PDP is the oldest party in Nigeria and has stood the test of time.

Furthermore, Atiku explained that the PDP has a constitution that guides the conduct of members and the party’s activities, adding that all disagreements must be resolved in tandem with the party’s rules and regulations.

End.
