Former Senate President, Iyorchia Ayu, was on December 10 sworn in as national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ayu and other members of the new National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP were also presented with certificates of return during the swearing in ceremony at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.

The new PDP national officers were elected at the party’s national convention, held on October 30 and 31 at the Eagles Square in Abuja.

Promises to reposition party.

In his acceptance speech, the new PDP national chairman promised to reposition the party towards emerging victorious in the 2023 general elections.

He said he would return the party to the people.

“Our task at this auspicious moment is to return the party to the people. But to do that, the party needs to be reinvigorated, reinvented and repositioned.

“We are not unmindful of our missed steps and actions in the past, but we have learnt our lessons, both in government and in opposition.

“Today, we stand tall, and with a firm resolve to rebuild our great party and rescue our nation.”
