Ayu Will Not Resign Soon As PDP National Chair – Media Aide
The national chair of the Peoples Democratic Party, has got no plan to resign his position, Mr. Simon Imobo Tswam, his special adviser on Media and Communications clarifies.
Imobo-Tswam revealed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
“We restate, therefore, that the PDP National Chairman has not resigned and has no plan of resigning. For clarity and emphasis, he was elected for a tenure of four years.
“Sections 45 and 47 of the PDP Constitution are clear on the removal and/or resignation of the National Chairman.
“Those who don’t know this should get copies of the party’s Constitution for more information on the matter.
“PDP members and the general public are advised to ignore any story of such a phantom resignation,” he said.
He said the stories flying around that Ayuh has resigned and that the resignation letter lies with an erstwhile Senate President, David Mark, is totally false, baseless, reckless, inaccurate and complete fictional work.
“If there is such a resignation, it exists only in the imagination of those who have made themselves available for hatchet jobs,” he said.
He said if Ayuh has truly resigned, he will hand over his resignation letter to the deputy national chair (north), and not David Mark. Insisting that section 45 (I and ll) are clear on that.
“So, where does Mark come in here, being that he is not even a member of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC)
“It appears that those who have been procured to blackmail the national chairman out of office are not even aware of what the party’s Constitution says about the matter.
“We are shocked that such reckless, vicious, mischievous and fabricated falsehood can find prime space in the mainstream media.
“But, even more shocking is the fact that otherwise respected media houses have made themselves easy platforms for unscrupulous people to peddle falsehood and run smear campaigns,” he alleged.
Imobo-Tswam emphasised that the national chairman, “is on a crucial assignment to lead the PDP on a historic rescue mission comes February 2023.
“And, he will not be deterred or distracted by media terrorism or political blackmail.(NAN)
