Power sharing splits Ondo PDP

18 November 2014, 16:19

Akure - Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State have rejected the sharing formula agreed upon by old and new members of the party, reports New Telegraph.

The Senate President David Mark had brokered a peace deal between the old members of the party in the state, led by the Chairman, Mr. Ebenezer Alabi and the new members led by Governor Olusegun Mimiko.

The agreement resolved that the Mimiko-led new PDP would produce two out of the three candidates contesting the senatorial seat in the forthcoming general election while the Alabi-led executive would produce one.

The aggrieved PDP members have, however, rejected the sharing formula.

They have set up a 12-man committee to meet with Mark and the PDP Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BOT), Tony Anenih to discuss issues that will help in moving the party forward.
