Listen to this article

Some suspended members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State have warned that the actions of the Adekunle Akindele-led caretaker committee might jeopardise the occasion’s possibilities at profitable the 2023 presidential elections.

The members, who’re from Ayedaade Local Government Area of the State, have been suspended for alleged anti-party actions

They are sympathisers of Dotun Babayemi, the suspended Osun PDP chieftain.

In a petition signed by Segun Odekunmi, the Secretary of the PDP Elders Forum within the State and 7 different members, they warned of dire penalties of leaving the Osun PDP disaster unresolved.

The petition which was titled, “Re:Complaints Against the Illegal Suspension of Party Leaders from Ayedaade Local Government of Osun State By the State Caretaker Committee, Pursuant to Articles 57 & 61 of Peoples Democratic Party’s Constitution of 2017(Amended)”, was forwarded to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the PDP nationwide chairman and all members of the National Working Committee of the occasion.

“Our party has the chance of winning all the elections at the next general elections only in the atmosphere of unity and mutual respect for one another. We hope the National Working Committee of our party will timeously intervene to correct this anomaly in the interest of the party so that this untoward action will not consume our party in the forthcoming elections,” they said.

While accusing the Osun PDP caretaker committee of witch-hunting them due to their avowed help for the gubernatorial aspiration of Dotun Babayemi, they described the anti-party allegations slammed on them as baseless and ludicrous.

“We need to state clearly that the allegations have been baseless and unfounded and can’t be substantiated with any materials information, by our traducers within the occasion. We say with all sense of duty that Prince Oyedotun Babayemi hails from our native authorities and now we have an ethical responsibility to help his ambition.

“Supporting Babayemi’s ambition by no means connoted anti-party. We have labored tirelessly and assiduously for the success of the occasion as we believed he would win on the legislation court docket.

“Suspending members of the party at a time the elections were drawing nearer is capable of creating doubts in the minds of PDP members and could adversely dim the chances of the party at the 2023 polls if not urgently addressed.”

The different signatories to the petition embrace: Adelani Ajanaku, Kehinde Adesiyan, Mayowa Adegboye, Aliyu Adeyanju, Kamorudeen Ojo Elegunmeje, Ajayi Solomon and Munurudeen Adekunle.

Dotun Babayemi, a factional gubernatorial candidate of the Osun PDP was expelled from the occasion for alleged anti-party actions.

His expulsion adopted an earlier suspension slammed on him by the ward govt members of the PDP in Ayedaade Local Government Area of the State.
