Benue Speaker congratulates Ayu on his emergence as PDP national chairman



The Speaker of Benue House of Assembly, Mr Titus Uba, has congratulated the newly-elected National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Iyorchia Ayu, on his victory at the party’s National Convention on Saturday.

Uba, in a congratulatory message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Wuese Orshi, on Monday in Makurdi, said that members of the party made the right decision by voting Ayu as the National Chairman.

According to him, Ayu knows his onions in politics as one of the founding members of the PDP, who had also served the nation at various capacities.

“Dr Ayu has served the nation in various capacities including being the Senate President in the third Republic, minister of Industry, minister of Internal Affairs, Minister of Education and Minister of Environment.

“So he is unarguably fit to hold the affairs of the PDP in Nigeria, given his pedigree and administrative savvy.

“The wisdom and sagacity applied by Dr Ayu to navigate the legislature during the military era stands as a testimony to the fact that he has the recondite tact and courage to confront the challenges facing the party and prepare it for the task of giving Nigeria and Nigerians better leadership,” Uba said.

The speaker wished Ayu well in his new assignment, calling on all and sundry to pitch their tent with the PDP in the 2023 general elections. (NAN)
