Ado-Ekiti—The court validated Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, Mr Williams Ajayi, has suspended his ousted rival, Mr Gboyega Oguntuase and two others from the party.
Others also suspended are the former Publicity Secretary of the party, Jackson Adebayo and Secretary, Tope Anjorin
Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti, in a judgement delivered on Tuesday by Justice Taiwo Taiwo, dissolved Oguntuase’s group, known to be sponsored by Fayose and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to grant Ajayi’s group recognition.
But the sacked Oguntuase, insisted that he remained the chairman of the PDP in Ekiti, saying the judgment was an attempt to weaken the party ahead of the 2018 governorship election.
Oguntuase made the statement while addressing newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday.
