South-West State Chairmen of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have said that they don’t care if Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state leaves the PDP for another, after he warned the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party against postponing the South-West congress of the party.
It was learnt that the PDP had fixed April 10 for the event to hold in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
But Makinde in a statement, issued by his media aide, Taiwo Adisa, warned the NWC against succumbing to pressure to postpone the congress, adding that such won’t be allowed.
But the Chairman of the South-West PDP Chairmen, Dr Sikirulai Ogundele, in a statement released on behalf of PDP chairmen in Ekiti, Lagos and Osun states – Otunba Bisi Kolawole, Adedeji Doherty and Sunday Bisi, respectively, noted that it is quite shocking that Seyi Makinde could insult the custodians of the party just because they chose to obey an order of the court.
Dr Sikirulai Ogundele statement reads, “Who cares if he chooses to leave the PDP this time, too? Is he not even already a sinking ship in Oyo State, placing members of the SDP and ADC (Action Democratic Congress) over and above those of the PDP?”
“Without apologies, Governor Makinde can do his worse. He should stop threatening the party because he is not more a loyal and committed member of the party than people like us who stood by the party when he left.”
