January 05, (THEWILL) – The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu, has debunked reports that he recently met with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State capital.
Reacting to a viral photo of himself and Wike during the purported meeting, Ayu blamed mischief makers for the speculations.
Ayu, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Communications, Simon Imobo-Tswam, disowned the trending photo as recent, adding that it was an old one, which was being circulated to make it seem he recently had a meeting with Wike.
Reiterating that he is in no way embattled as chairman of the party, Ayu said he is enjoying the New Year break with his family.
“Dr Ayu states clearly that: 1. He never travelled to Port Harcourt and 2. He has not set eyes on Gov. Wike lately.
“The photograph trending on the social media is an old one. The story accompanying it is, therefore, false and mischievous.
“He also adds, for the purpose of factual accuracy, that he is in no way embattled. The National Chairman is, rather, enjoying the New Year Break with his family.
“The general public and, especially the PDP family, is advised to ignore the story and focus on the historic task ahead of the party next month”, he said.
