Barely 48 hours to the kickoff of the 2023 election campaigns, the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, has found himself in fresh crises.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the fresh hot water Ayu found himself is linked to the whereabouts of N10 billion realized by the party from nomination fees paid by aspirants.
Recall that PDP had fixed its presidential nomination form and expression of interest forms for N40 million, governorship N21 million, Senate N3.5 million, House of Representatives N2.5 million, and House of Assembly N600, 000.
According to The Nation, the aggrieved camp of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike was pushing for accountability to increase pressure on Ayu amid allegations that a bloc in the party is trying to offer each National Working Committee (NWC) member N28millon to gloss over the huge cash in order to curtail any further crisis in the party but some members of the NWC, who rejected the bribe, are insisting on accountability and on getting answers about the depletion of the cash from over N10billion to N1billion.
