SocialMediaTrends: More on Ayu’s suspension & why Otti must govern Abia from a real govt house



Nigerians on social media have been reacting to the saga between a ward of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the party chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

Recall that Ayu was reported to have been suspended on Sunday by the ward executive for alleged anti-party activities, failure to pay his Annual Subscription Fees, and failure to vote during the just-concluded elections.

But in response, Ayu claimed on Monday that those who had suspended him were uneducated and unaware of the PDP constitution’s stipulations.

The saga took an interesting turn as a High Court in Makurdi, Benue State, issued an interim injunction restraining Dr. Iyorchia Ayu from parading himself as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Nigerians took to social media to acknowledge the development as the handiwork of Nyesom Wike, while some believe President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the brain behind it.

Abia government house

Days after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Alex Otti winner of the March 18 governorship election in Abia state, many Nigerians took to social media to debate whether or not the Governor-elect would continue to use the rented apartment as government house.

Shocking revelation showed that the Abia State Government is set to move to a permanent house 32 years after the creation of the state.

The oil-producing state was among the 11 states created on August 27, 1991, by the Gen. Ibrahim Babangida administration.

Nigerians on social media expressed shock as they drew comparisons with states established after them that have successfully built their Government houses.
