The Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has suspended one of the factional chairmen, Prince Biyi Poroye, and 21 other members, who were said to have contributed to the party’s defeat during the November 26 governorship election.
A statement signed by the state publicity secretary, Mr. Banji Okunomo, explained that the decision was taken at a meeting held by the party’s State Working Committee, SWC, earlier yesterday.
“In line with section 57 of the constitution of our party, and the inherent powers conferred on the SWC of the party, the following members are hereby suspended from the party with immediate effect for gross anti party activities:
“Arole Denis Alonge Niyi, Prince Biyi Poroye, Hon. Ebenezer Omotayo Alabi, Hon. Johnson Alabi, Chief Ola bisi Johnson, Dr Olu Olu Ogunye, Sen. Omololu Moroyi, Chief Mrs Yemi Ajonibode, Alhaji Musa Megida Chief Isaac Alase, Bar. Sola Ebiseni, Ademola Genty, and others.”
The statement, however, summoned the suspended members to show up before the party disciplinary committee on Monday, December 5, 2016.
