Embattled national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) ,Dr Iyorchia Ayu has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) is behind the litany of recent false reports ascribed to him on social media with regards to feud with Rivers state governor ,Nyesome Wike.
Dr Ayu clarified that at no time did he described governor Wike as not capable of bearing a child or claimed that the governor is not the biological father of his children.
Ayu who made the clarifications on a release made available to journalists by his Special Adviser to the National Chairman (Media and Communications).Simon Imobo-Tswam said his attention had been drawn to what he termed “mischievous and senseless posts on the social media.”
In the statement entitled ” APC, MISCHIEVOUS PEOPLE, PLANTING STORIES ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA AGAINST PDP AND HER NATIONAL CHAIRMAN” the PDP chairman explained that resolved, as a matter of principle not to make comment or respond to any attack from Wike .
“The attention of the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, has been drawn to mischievous and senseless posts on the social media.
“The posts, purporting to be from the PDP national chairman, state that Ayu says he cannot talk to a man who is childless.
Another post, with a photograph of Wike and a lady with some children, claims that the governor is not the biological father of his children.
“Nothing can be more diabolical, senseless and amateurish. Descending so low is neither in Ayu’s character nor nature.
Those planting these stories against the PDP and her national chairman are simply showing their lack of intelligence.” the statement reads in part
Dr. Ayu never said anything after Wike’s statements yesterday, and does not intend to say anything in response.
“We state, categorically and without equivocation, that the posts are completely false. Even the inelegant construction of the posts puts them beneath Ayu.
“This is even more senseless as the national chairman has met Gov. Wike’s children on a number of times. We advise the APC and other mischievous people engaged in this shameful and criminal enterprise to be more professional next time”
