Some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are pushing for a probe of the party’s finances.
Naija News gathered that some PDP NWC members are angry that the National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, has failed to give an account of some funds that accrued to the party.
A source told TheCable that the PDP leaders have demanded an audit for about N1 billion that the party got from friends of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.
The source added the PDP NWC members want Ayu to account for the funds that accrued to the party through the sale of forms and donations.
“Some of the NWC members want an audit for about N1 billion that the party got from friends of Atiku, in addition to donates from governors and sale of nomination forms,” the source said.
The camp of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has reportedly asked for the resignation of the PDP National Chairman.
Naija News understands that the Wike camp made the demand during the meeting between the presidential candidate of the PDP and the Rivers governor.
The allies of the governor said the resignation of the PDP chairman is the only way to resolve the rift between Atiku and Wike and move the party forward.
They described Ayu as a divisive figure, stating that he would need to step down for there to be harmony in the opposition party.
