From TUNDE RAHEEM Akure
Few days to the governorship election in Ondo State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state yesterday expelled five of its top members over allegation of anti-party activities.
The PDP’s Director of Publicity, Ayo Fadaka, said the action was taken to punish indiscipline and disloyalty, which he alleged had characterized the affected party chieftains attitude and conduct in the last one year.
The members are Professor Olu Agbi, Chief Segun Adegoke, Dr. Akin Olowookere, Demola Adegoroye and Kunle Agunbiade
Fadaka alleged: “The affected members have been bought over by Dr. Olusegun Mimiko to continually help him cause confusion within the party and merciful enough, they command no followership and influence to damage our party. Therefore, we declare without equivocation that they are already members of the Labour Party and only masquerade as our people only to cause confusion. Thus any purported action they claim to undertake on behalf of the party is of no effect and as they have ceased to be members of our party forthwith.
“We want to use this opportunity to reassure the general public that there is no division in our ranks, as these people are striving to portray, they are only acting the role that have been carved out for them by Mimiko who is their sponsor.”
