A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun being supported by Senator Iyiola Omisore has sacked the National Secretary of Alli Modu Sheriff-led executive, Prof. Wale Oladipo; and chairman of another faction of the party in state, Soji Adagunodo.
The factional chairman of the party, Dr. Bayo Faforiji, who made the announcement during a congress at the PDP secretariat on Thursday, also announced the expulsion of the immediate chairman of the party, Gani Olaoluwa, as well as Secretary of Adagunodo-led executive, Bola Ajao.
According to him, the axed PDP leaders were found guilty of anti-party activities in relation to the suit filed to stop Eyitayo Jegede from becomingthe governorship candidate of the PDP in Ondo State.
Faforiji said a disciplinary committee was set up to look into the allegation of anti-party activities leveled against them over a month ago, but none of them appeared before the committee to defend themselves.
He added that the factional chairman, Adagunodo and his secretary, Ajao, were party to a suit instituted against the emergence of Eyitayo Jegede as PDP governorship candidate in Ondo State.
The report of the committee, Faforiji further stated, indicted Olaoluwa and Oladipo for their complicity in the matters relating to Ondo PDP governship tussle.
Reacting Adagunodo described the expulsion as a huge joke.
