The internal crisis rocking the Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party got deeper on Monday as its chairman, Chief Adebayo Dayo, and secretary, Alhaji Semiu Sodipo, were suspended from office indefinitely.
The suspension was followed by the election of Chief Ibukunolu Ojosipe and Muritala Adegoke as interim chairman and secretary respectively by nine members of the party’s state working committee.
But in a swift reaction, Dayo described their suspension as “illegal.”
The nine officers accused Dayo and Sodipo of alleged financial misappropriation, indiscriminate imposition of candidates and exclusion of party officials from the ongoing PDP congresses.
Speaking on behalf of the nine officers at a media briefing in Abeokuta, the Organising Secretary of Ogun PDP, Dr. Folasade Filani, said the suspension was in accordance with section 21(5) of the party’s constitution.
She said the chairman and secretary would remain suspended pending the time their cases would be determined by the appropriate organ of the party.
