OSOGBO — Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, explained how the former Governor of the state, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola allegedly left the Eagle Square last Saturday, venue of the party’s mini convention to attend a parallel convention of the party at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua International Conference Centre, Abuja.
Prince Oyinlola, former National Secretary of the party was elected the Interim National Secretary of Alhaji Kawu Baraje led faction of the new PDP last Saturday.
Briefing newsmen in Osogbo at the end of PDP elders’ forum, the party claimed Oyinlola after he had voted at the Eagle’s Square “lied” to the state delegates that he was going to the toilet only for him to resurface where a parallel convention was held.
Similarly, the party may have commenced the process of disciplining the former governor in line with the constitution of the party.
The party alleged that Oyinlola had erred and contravened its constitution by teaming up with other members of the party to form a parallel group.
The former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Shuaib Oyedokun who briefed newsmen at the end of the meeting, said the party would ensure that the former Governor was disciplined for allegedly contravening the constitution of the party.
Oyedokun who claimed that a crucial meeting of the party had been called in Oyinlola’s Local Government Area, Odo-Otin, noted that the former Governor did not consult with any of the delegates from the state at the convention before he took his decision.
