PDP crisis deepens as Buruji Kashamu’s faction reject Ladi Adebutu’s unification meeting
Damilola Adelesi, Abeokuta
The Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has yesterday rejected the “Ogun PDP Unification Meeting” organised by some faction of the feuding Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
In the press statement signed by Engineer Bayo Dayo, he described the unification meeting as one organised by “meddlesome interlopers who claimed to be members of the Ogun State PDP.”
The Chairman, Engr. Adebayo Dayo stated that no one else has the powers to convey “unification meeting” except his own led Executive Committee.
He added that the July 9, 2019 decision of the apex court in favour of the Dayo-led Exco – which is the second in five months, has permanently resolved the Ogun State PDP leadership tussle.
Bayo Dayo said the leadership of the party has been reaching out to aggrieved members of the party and founding fathers of the party, revealing the party has been receiving positive responses from them.
Reiterating his stand, Bayo Dayo said: “There is no faction in the Ogun State PDP. Engr. Adebayo Dayo-led State Executive Committee (Exco) is the only leadership of the party in the state.
“We want to use this medium to appeal to members of the party to be calm as the leadership of the party is working relentlessly towards repositioning it.
“On this note, we wish to, once again, appeal to Abuja politicians and their local collaborators to stop fanning the embers of disunity in the Ogun State PDP. A leader should put himself in position of a leader. Any leader worth the appellation should not be seen to be aiding and abetting illegalities and desperate elements.
“These are characters who unabashedly abandoned the party few days to the 2019 Governorship and House of Assembly election, publicly executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) and worked against the PDP and its candidates.They are yet to apologise and atone for their anti-party activities. If they are interested in returning to the party, they should come in through the right channel.” Bayo Dayo added.
However, Bayo Dayo declared that as a law-abiding body, the Ogun State PDP will not hesitate to take legal actions against those violating the express verdicts of the apex court with respect to the State PDP leadership.
