The recently appointed Acting Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party in Osun State,
Mr Wale Ojo, has been suspended.
Ojo was suspended on Tuesday by a faction of the party supported by Senator Ademola Adeleke.
Daily Report Nigeria learnt that Ojo was only recently appointed acting chairman of the PDP following the elevation of Soji Adagunodo, as the South West’s National Vice Chairman of the party.
Ojo’s suspension formed part of the outcome of an executive council meeting of the party.
He was barred from holding any party office for the next one year as part of resolutions reached at the end of the meeting.
The resolution signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Ayodeji Areola, read;
“The report of the Osun PDP Disciplinary Committee recommending the removal of Wale Ojo (Vice Chairman, Osun East) and Alhaji Remi Arogundade (State Financial Secretary) as members of SWC/SEC and their immediate replacement from their various local governments as well as their debarment from holding any party executive office for the next one year is hereby approved.
“That the SEC also condemns the action of Soji Adagunodo who took the party to court without exhausting domestic remedies as provided for by the party’s constitution and still surreptitiously pursed the case even after his assumption of office as the South West chairman of the party.
“That the National Working Committee of the PDP led by Dr. Iyorchia Ayu be and is hereby called upon to warn Adagunodo’s loyalists and that the NWC should not spare the rod in dealing with the anti-party activities of Adagunodo’s loyalists within Osun PDP.”
