PDP Crisis: Ayu’s camp reacts to allegation of bribery


Simon Imobo-Tswam, the Special Assistant on Communications to Iyorchia Ayu, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has defended his principal on the fraud allegations levied against him.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that reacting to the decision by some members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to return monies described as their housing allowance, Imobo-Tswam stated that the money was duly approved as housing allowance.

Punch quotes the media aide as saying: “They collected money and decided to return it after three weeks; that they didn’t know what the money was meant for.

“It was a collective decision of NWC which they are part of. The party has explained that the allowance is statutory.

“These people wanted three years (rent), but Ayu said no. Some of them said they had no money.

“Ayu did not pay them from his pocket; the party paid them,” he stressed, noting that there is no justification for the calls for Ayu to leave office.

“Why should Ayu go? Because Governor Nyesom Wike says so?” he queried.
