PDP Chairman, Ayu Reveals Those Behind Lawsuit Challenging Atiku’s Victory

Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP’s national chairman, has accused the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) of being behind the lawsuit contesting the win of Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate.

According to, Ayu made this claim on Friday at the PDP’s celebration of the UN International Youth Day 2022 in Abuja, shortly after Governor Nyesom Wike disassociated himself from the lawsuit with the filing number FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022 that was made on June 6, 2022, at the Federal High Abuja.

Wike has characterized the lawsuit as the product of troublemakers looking to use him for easy political points.

He said: “I don’t know anything about the so called suit. I did not ask anyone to file any suit for me. I don’t know the lawyers”.


Continuing, he said, “am I a kid to be filing a suit at this time. I had 14 days after the primary within which to have filed any suit. I didn’t do that then, is it two months after primary I will file a suit?”

Ayu, whilst condemning the suit, said; “He (Wike) never took the party to court. It’s APC that puts the case. The first man on that case is a coordinator for the presidential candidate of the APC.”

Ayu, who did not mention any particular name, added that, “We know very well that they don’t believe they can win any election. They are trying to divide you. Don’t let any APC manipulation divide you. They are the one sponsoring stories of crisis in the PDP.”

“There is no crisis in PDP. PDP has no crisis. It’s a united political party. Anybody who thinks he can come and do crisis, they should wait for us next year February, we will show them that they are the ones who have a crisis.

“So, I want to make it clear because people will start saying that Wike took the party to court. Wike is a strong party man and I’m happy he came out immediately and denied that he never took the party to court.

“And very soon, it will be revealed that the coordinator of the Presidential candidate of the APC was the one that put Wike’s name. And that is a criminal thing,” Ayu stated.
