AYU’S ALLEGED SUSPENSION: Bode George Declares It PDP Chairman’s Comeuppance


A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), retired Navy Commodore Bode George, has declared that the party’s embattled National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, deserves the treatment he is currently receiving.

George was speaking on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Monday night, in response to Ayu’s suspension.

Following the recent suspension of certain PDP chieftains, including former Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim; former Governors of Ekiti and Katsina States, respectively, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, and Alhaji Ibrahim Shema, George said that Ayu allegedly treated the PDP like his private firm.

George said that he had advised Ayu to walk carefully in the midst of the main opposition party’s crisis in order to prevent it from collapsing.

“You see, we warned (him). Keep in mind our meetings. One night, I had a one-on-one discussion with Ayu at his house and told him, ‘Don’t start what you can’t finish’,” George said.

He further explained: “You know, there are certain norms, basics that the founding fathers created for the party. I kept saying, ‘Look, the way you’re going, you’re going to split the party, and a divided house is a defeated house’.”

Bemoaning the suspension of Fayose, Anyim, and others by the Ayu-led PDP, George said that it should not have occurred while the party was still contesting the February 25, 2023, Presidential Election in court.

He stressed: “This is not a private company. I’m pleading with them because that was how the ANPP (All Nigeria Peoples Party) went under. This ship will not sink.

“Let’s wait and see what the courts do, and then there will be a serious post-mortem analysis where you will know who did this, who did that, and who can be punished.

“He was overly eager, suspending people as if it were a private firm.”
