Lagos - A faction of the Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reaffirmed the suspension of the party's Chairman, Tunji Shelle, reports Punch.
This is despite a letter from the national leadership of the party nullifying the suspension of Shelle as the Chairman of the party in the state.
Kamaldeen Olorunoje, the factional Chairman of the party in the state, said he remains the acting Chairman of the party and vowed not to vacate the position.

He noted that the national body of the PDP only described Shelle’s impeachment as illegal but never said anything about his suspension.
He noted that the leadership of the party has not asked him step down, noting that there can no be vacuum since Shelle stands suspended.
He challenged Shelle to call a meeting of the party’s State Working Committee (SWC) and see whether members would attend.
Shelle had been suspended by the members of the SWC for failing to lead the party to victory in Lagos.
The SWC subsequently appointed Olorunoje as the acting chairman.
