Breaking: PDP rejects imposition of minority over Majority, denounces Sunday Bisi as acting Chairman

Published

The Osun State Chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party has frowned at a letter circulating on social media purportedly communicating a decision of the National Working Committee of the party over the appointment of a factional leader campaigning for one out of the Six Governorship Aspirants; Senator Ademola Adeleke, Mr Sunday Bisi as the Acting Chairman of the Party.

Recall that a couple of days ago the intra-party leadership squabble bedeviling the major opposition party in the state was gathered to be finally laid to rest in a landmark judgement delivered by Justice Aderibigbe of the State High Court sitting in Ile-Ife. The court ruled that Hon Soji Adagunodo was the Chairman of the party before his resignation from office. While stressing further in his verdict that the court affirmed the congress conducted under the leadership of Hon Soji Adagunodo and all other legitimate actions done by him, while in office. From the judgement it was clear that, part of the actions done in office by the Hon Adagunodo was handing over to Barr wale Ojo, who is the vice Chairman from the region/zone of the former Chairman before his resignation from office.

Meanwhile, our correspondent present at the state capital, Osogbo was at the rally organised by the People’s Democratic party in the state.

Speaking shortly after the rally, the legally recognized State Acting Chairman Barr. Wale Ojo said ” As you can see, our people from across the 30 local governments and the Area office have converged here today to show they’re displeased with the position of the NWC. Let me say to you in clear terms, this is about constitionality and in the face of the law I remain the valid and legally recognized State Acting Chairman of Osun PDP. If you ask me, I would tell you unequivocally and expressly that the letter sent out as the position of the NWC of our great party is a mistake and this mistake will be pointed out and corrected.”

Our correspondent also spoke with one of the leaders and Former commissioner under the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party during the Era of Prince Olagunsoye oyinlola, Sooko Sunday Adewole from Ile-Ife. ” We have gathered this afternoon to send strong signal to the Sen Iyorchia Ayu’s led NWC of our great party to watch their back. They should desist from treading on the same path on which the erstwhile occupant of that office, Prince Uche Seconds, treaded— whom during his days turned party politics to personal business.

Another leader of the party from osogbo has this to say. “Going by the ruling of the Ile-Ife High Court, I think the NWC of the party should as a matter of exigencies recognize that judgement because in its real sense, the judgement binds all organs of our great party from the National to the state level.

A former Chairman of the Party in Osun, Barr. Ojo Williams said “the Peoples’ Democratic Party which you all know is a democratic and law abiding party. What are we as a party going to campaign with, if we cannot obey a simple court pronouncement? If you take a keen look at our party constitution there’s a place for supremacy of the constitution. What this implies is that, the dictates of the party constitution is supreme and in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He further implored the NWC led by Ayu to be cautious and never be allowed to be used as a destabilizing agent rocking the boat of Osun PDP, because this is the appropriate time for Osun PDP to recapture the state, he eloquently advised.
