A faction of Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday, described the National Secretary of the party, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, as an impersonator for claiming that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has recognised the PDP congresses in the state held by a faction loyal to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Factional chairman, Bayo Dayo, in a statement in Abeokuta over the recent comment by Oyinlola on the leadership of the party in the state, said it was laughable that the National Secretary could constitute himself into the NWC.
Oyinlola, in a letter dated August 4, had said the NWC has recognised the recent congresses held by Obasanjo’s faction which produced Senator Oladipo Odujirin as chairman of the state executive.
Reacting to the pronouncement, the Dayo-led faction chided Oyinlola, saying. “This is one of Oyinlola’s several desperate attempts to hijack the structure of the Ogun State PDP for his master in order to achieve some invidious plot ahead of the 2015 general elections. It is laughable, to say the least.”
“It is common knowledge that the NWC meets every Wednesday, yet Oyinlola wrote a letter on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 to the Police and SSS where he claimed that a new State Executive Committee of the PDP has just been inaugurated in spite of the subsistence of my exco.”
