The Secretary of the Oyo State Chapter of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Wasiu Adeleke, has charged party officials from wards to state levels to preach and work for the unity of the party.
He disclosed this at the meeting held in Molete, Ibadan Secretariat of the party with the local governments’ Secretaries and youth leaders of 33 local governments of the state.
He emphasized that the party as presently constituted belongs to everyone and to no one.
He bemoaned the act of impunity and lack of respect for the rule of law and constitutionalism by a few officials of the party from Ido local government who claimed to have suspended duly elected Ido Local government Chairman recently.
He declared that “the suspension of Ido Local government Chairman, Alhaji Ayuba Olabanji is null and void.
“The PDP as a party has Processes and Procedures as laid out by the constitution of the party before any important verdict could be taken. Gone are the days of impunity in the Party anyone who engages in it will be corrected according to the constitution of the party. As far as Oyo state PDP is concerned Alhaji Ayuba Olabanji remains party Chairman in Ido Local government” said the state party Secretary shortly after the meeting.
He declared further that the people of the state are clamouring for the return of the party to power in 2019 particularly now that the ruling APC has destroyed the very fundamental tool for human growth and development which is Education in the state as all Oyo State owned higher institutions staff are owed several months of salaries which necessitated some of them running skeletal services while others have gone on indefinite strike.
He said the party is prepared to salvage the state from total collapse.
