Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Iyorchia Ayu has accused the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) and some faceless mischief makers of planting unpalatable stories about him on the social media.
A statement by Simon Imobo-Tswam, Special Adviser to the National Chairman (Media and Communications), said, the attention of the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, has been drawn to mischievous and senseless posts on the social media.
One of such post authored by one Lawal Garba but purporting it to be from the PDP national chairman) stated that Ayu says he cannot talk to a man who “cannot father a child!”
Another post, with a photograph of Wike and a lady with some children (from Igbere TV) claims that the governor is not “the biological father of his three kids.”
“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.”
“We state, categorically and without equivocation, that the posts are completely false. Even the inelegant construction of the posts puts them beneath Ayu.”
The statement said that, Dr. Ayu never said anything after Wike’s statements yesterday and does not intend to say anything in response.
“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.”
“As for the Lawal Garba and Igbere TV, if they do not desist from this evil path, we may be forced to invite security agents into the matter.”, warned the statement.
