PDP chieftains trade blames over party’s affair
Party protests Supreme Court sack of Ihedioha, asks CJN to resign
Fresh crisis is rocking the Ekiti State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as the party’s Legal Adviser, Sunday Olowolafe, yesterday accused the Chairman of the party, Gboyega Oguntuase, of perpetrating acts inimical to the survival of PDP.
In a statement in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, Olowolafe urged the Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee (NWC) to intervene before the chairman sinks the party and makes it unable to win future elections.
Olowolafe said: “Despite wise counsel by state working committee and many other stakeholders, his activities in the recent time fuelling and fanning ember of discord are of great concern.
But Oguntuase, while reacting to the allegation through a phone call by The Guardian, accused the legal adviser of doing the bidding of his paymaster by trying to cover up alleged criminality perpetrated by them.
He said that the legal adviser through his actions was merely pre-empting what the party could do to his alleged criminal activities and that of his boss.
In another development, the PDP in the state yesterday protested against the judgment of the Supreme Court, which sacked former Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha.
Oguntuase said the Supreme Court’s judgment was a clear indication that the judiciary is an appendage of the ruling APC
He described the verdict as miscarriage of justice and robbery of the people of Imo State, urging the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed, to resign.
