Makinde Must Resign Now, PDP Leaders Insist


Aggrieved members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday met again ahead of the planned congress of the party.

This was just as they passed a vote of no confidence on the leadership of Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State.

At the meeting were; Rt. Hon Mulikat Adeola, Alhaji Gbolarumi, Alhaji Nureni Akanbi, Engineer Femi Babalola, Elder Mattew Abioye, Princess Aderonke Adedoja, Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan, Asiwaju Adekola Adeoye, Alhaji Sarafa Olaoniye, Alhaji Ahmed Aranse, Alhaji Ajinawo, Baba Elisa, Chief Odeyemi, Alhaji Somope, Alhaji Bola Akinyemi, Hon Micheal Okunlade and host of others, members drawn from all the 33 local government areas of the state, vowed to ensure they do everything to prevent the emergence of Makinde from getting the party’s ticket for the second term.

The members, who voiced their displeasure at a well attended meeting said against the governor’s promise before and during the election, they have been neglected while those who were not around during the election are the ones benefiting from government.

The said they have accepted what has befallen them in the past but urged members to be prepared for the congress which begins this week.

“Go to your wards, mobilize your people. Don’t fight anybody. Record whatever happens and leave us to do the remaining in Abuja,” Akande-Adeola assured.

Akanbi, who spoke earlier, said never again would they entrust their destinies in the hands of someone like the incumbent governor.
