Why we’ll present delegates for convention—South West PDP faction

By David Adeoye
Ibadan –   A faction of the PDP South West Zonal Executive led by Chief Makanjuola Ogundipe says it will present delegates for Saturday’s National Convention of the party.

Alhaji Ibrahim Kolawole, the party’s Coordinator of the Mobilisation and Organisation Committee in the South West Zone, said this on Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) in Ibadan.

Kolawole said the outcome of a case before the Court of Appeal in Lagos on Monday further affirmed that the Ogundipe led-executive remains the authentic zonal executive committee.

He maintained that Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti and a former governor of Ogun, Gbenga Daniel, had failed in their bid to take over the structure of the party in the South West Zone.

”The case has been adjourned till April 12, 2018, which indicates that the earlier judgement of the lower court in favour of Ogundipe-led PDP executive in the South West subsists and remains binding.

”So there is no controversy on who and who will represent the southwest states at the Dec. 9 national convention, ” Kolawole stated.

He also ruled out the possibility of organising a parallel congress, saying the Ogundipe group would present delegates at the convention and abide with the outcome.

NAN reports that two factional groups are claiming to be the authentic executive of the PDP in the Southwest Zone.

While the Eddy Olafeso-led executive is loyal to the Ahmed Makarfi group, the Ali-Modu Sheriff camp has Ogundipe as its South West chairman.

The Ogundipe executive also has the support of Buruji Kashamu, the senator representing Ogun East. (NAN)
