The National Executive Council of the Peoples Democratic Party has passed a vote of confidence in the National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, suggesting that the party chairman will not be stepping down any time soon.
There have been calls by some members of the party that Ayu should step down as the chairman of the PDP.
Meanwhile, at the PDP National Executive Council Meeting today in Abuja, the party further reposed its confidence in Ayu.
The PUNCH reports that a total of 397 members of the NEC including past national chairmen of the party, the immediate past Vice President of the country, Namadi Sambo, the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar among others were accredited for the meeting.
All the 397 members of the NEC present at the meeting voted in support of Ayu to continue as the chairman of the party.
The acting Board of Trustees Chairman and a former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara, had put it to a voice vote after the House Minority Leader moved a motion for members of the committee to continue to have him as the chairman of the party.
