Ogun PDP Crisis Worsens


The Ogun State People’s Democratic Party, PDP,  crisis  worsen as a stalwart of PDP in the state, Senator Monsurudeen Babatunde Osholake, who was said to have been appointed as the chairman of the party in the state, has dragged the party before a Federal High Court  in Abeokuta, the state capital.

Joined as co-defendants in the claim filed before the court by Barister Gani Bello are Chief Dayo Soremi and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The plaintiff averred that in a bid to resolve the crisis in the party in the state, it was agreed that the two major factions led  by Senator Jubril Martins Kuye and the state governor, Otunba Gbanga Daniel, should jointly constitute a new executive committee.

To this effect, Senator Kuye’s faction was to appoint the chairman while the other group was to appoint the deputy party chairman.

Based on this agreement, Senator Osholake averred that though he was elected for the office of chairman  by Kuye’s group,  Chief Dayo Soremi still parades himself to the press, PDP and INEC as  the nominee of the group.

The plaintiff also averredthat INEC has published the time table for april 2011 elections and as chairman  he is the right person to organise election for the party aspirants.  He feared unless Soremi is called to order, INEC may later declare all the primary  elections of the primaries of the party null and void.

In view of this development, the plaintiff therefore urged the court not only to declare him  as the nominee of the senator kuye’s group for the office of chairman of PDP in Ogun State but to also restrain Chief Soremi from parading himself as the chairman of  PDP in Ogun State.
