New PDP Chairman, Iyiorchia Ayu

Senator Iyorchia Ayu has been elected as the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following the conclusion of the party’s national convention in the early hours of Sunday.

Ayu was declared Chairman by the Governor of Adamawa State and Chairman of the Convention Organising Committee, Ahmadu Fintiri.

Fintiri also declared members of the next National Working Committee of the party.

In his first speech as the new Chairman of the party, Ayu said that the party is back to take back power from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I want to sincerely appreciate the PDP family,” the elated new chairman said. “Today is simply a thank you address. When we started this party 23 – 24 years ago, we never in any way imagined that the journey will get us to this stage – a stage where we ruled for 16 years, we went into rough times but for anybody who will bother to see, PDP is back.

“And it is back to rescue Nigeria from the terrible mess we have been in the last six years. I want to appreciate all of you who have taken time as delegates, as observers, as supporters, as members of the media, as members of the security services, who have made this event such a wonderful event,” he said

VANTAGE NEWS reports that 3,600 delegates voted for new members of the NWC of the PDP at the convention, with only the office of the Deputy National Chairman (South) contested out of the 21 NWC positions.
