PDP lifts suspension on Oyinlola’s loyalists in Osun

09 November 2013, 06:26

Osogbo - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun has lifted the suspension of some members of the party believed to be loyalists of the party’s national Secretary, former Gov. Olagunsoye Oyinlola.

This is contained in a statement signed by Alhaji Ganiyu Olaoluwa, state chairman of the party issued  on Friday in Osogbo.

The Federal Court of Appeal in Abuja had on Thursday upheld the election of Oyinlola as the duly elected as National Secretary of the party.

It will also be recalled that the party had earlier in September announced the suspension of the party’s members who were accused of attending a rally organised at the instance of Oyinlola in Okuku, his country home.

The statement stated that the party took the action at the end of its State Executive Committee meeting held at its secretariat in Ogo-Oluwa Osogbo.

It said the party executive resolved that the suspension be lifted on the affected members in response to the court's ruling that re-instated Oyinlola as the party’s national scribe.

The statement also said that the party had granted  “state pardon“ to other chieftains of the party, who had earlier been suspended for similar reasons.

Affected persons were Alhaji Ademola Rasaq, former state chairman and Chief Yinka Adeojo, former state secretary of the party as well as Alhaji Bakare Akomola, a party chieftain.

The statement said that the party had become united, stronger and more focused, stressing that all the bickering among members had become a thing of the past.

It however stated that that the state party remained  loyal to the Alhaji Bamagar Tukur-led executive.
