By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan
Few hours after the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), local government election primaries in Oyo State, Senator Abdul Ningi declared the primaries free, fair and credible, a chieftain of the party, Alhaji Adebisi Olopoeyan has faulted the claim.
Alhaji Olopoeyan in a statement in Ibadan emphasized that the process of the primary was far from being free, fair and credible, adding that the Committee Chairman’s claim was untrue
The PDP Chieftain maintained that this single act from the Senator Ningi led committee ” is the beginning of the end of united PDP in the state”, and challenged Senator Ningi and his committee members to move round the 33 local governments across the state and make such claim, and wait for the result of such falsehood claim.
“I challenge Senator Abdul Ningi if truly the primaries was free, fair and credible as he was saying, he should go round the local governments and tell them the primary was free, fair and credible, and see what will happen to him I want him to mention one local government where he went to, to monitor the primary or where the primary was held. Senator Ningi is just here to do an hatchet job that will destroy the party in Oyo state.” he said. “Ningi lacks credibility, he has not been seen or even pick the calls of aggrieved aspirants and leaders of the party since his arrival in Ibadan, he was just sitting in the hotel enjoying himself until today, Wednesday he showed up at government house making false claims.Before the conduct of the primaries, there should be stakeholders meeting, I want everybody including NWC to ask Ningi where such meeting was held or the local government he visited.”
Alhaji Olopoeyan stesssed, “when the party executives knew there won’t be any primary, why collecting money for nomination form from aspirants, this was dubious character”, saying, “I want .to remind Governor Seyi Makinde that in 2015, when there was this kind of delegate congress that would in turn do governorship primary, he left the party but to our surprise the Governor is allowing the party executives to do what he cannot accept to other members of the party.”
“I want to appeal to the National Working Committee to address the injustices from the Ningi led electoral committee and party executives in the state if anything good can come out of the party in the future elections.There is acrisis everywhere now if Senator Saraki led committee can come and witness it because we believe in their committee.He should learn from Senator Bukola Saraki led reconciliation committee, which are meeting and consulting with all the aggrieved members irrespective of any group such persons be long”.
