Ogbulafor’s resignation in line with rule of law – PDP

Ibadan—Alhaji Tajudeen Oladipo, National Vice Chairman (South West) of  PDP, says the resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Chief Vincent Ogbulafor, was a demonstration of  the rule of law. Oladipo said in Ibadan that the resignation showed that the PDP believes in the rule of law. He said the resignation had brought credibility to the party and Nigeria in general.

“ What happens in advanced countries where people accused of doubtful character resign from office is beginning to happen in Nigeria,” he said.

Oladipo, who described Ogbulafor as a man of integrity, said his resignation only indicated that there were no sacred cows in the party.

Also speaking, Alhaji Morufu Atilola, Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, said Ogbulafor’s resignation was a demonstration  of  PDP’s integrity.

Atilola, who commended Ogbulafor for what he called his exemplary leadership, said the resignation would boost the image of the party and  attract credible people.

Chief Richard Akinjide, former Attorney General of the Federation and chieftain of the PDP, also said that Ogbulafor’s resignation was commendable.

Akinjide, who  said Ogbulafor believed in the rule of  law,  urged that he should be given a fair trial.

“ He had left a legacy of self confidence, integrity and fair play in the party. I wish him well in his future endeavours,” he added.

Alhaji Rasaq Folorunsho, Chairman of the ANPP in Oyo State , said  the resignation of Ogbulafor was a welcome development.

He, however,  argued that the resignation had nothing to do with the 2011 elections.

Ogbulafor is standing trial at an Abuja High Court for alleged mismanagement during his tenure as Minister of Special Duties under former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
