PDP crisis: Ogun West tells Onabiyi to resign


The political crisis in Ogun State took another dimension on Monday as the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun West Senatorial District asked for the immediate resignation of the Chairman of the State Elders Council, Chief Sule Onabiyi.

The political crisis in Ogun State took another dimension on Monday as the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun West Senatorial District asked for the immediate resignation of the Chairman of the State Elders Council, Chief Sule Onabiyi.
The call for Onabiyi’s resignation or his immediate sack by Governor Gbenga Daniel was in reaction to statements credited to Onabiyi to the effect that the Yewa/Awori zone would not produce the next governor of the state in 2011.

Addressing a press conference in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, the people of the Senatorial District led by Chief Ayo Otegbola expressed dissatisfaction with the statements of Onabiyi which they said was not only insultive but also provocative.
Chief Otegbola said: “Our resolve in Ogun West is to henceforth suspend all participation in the activities of Elders’ Council until the very unlikely event that Chief Onabiyi resigns honorably or he is booted out by our just and fair minded Governor.”

He lamented that the zone had never produced a governor and that they had been waiting for 32 years, adding that it would only be just and fair for the zone to produce the governor in 2011.
“We wish to say that Chief Sule Onabiyi cannot be a threat or a stumbling block to Yewa/Awori governorship ambition in 2011. Yewa/Awori shall emerge in 2011 with or without Chief Sule Onabiyi.”
Meanwhile, the Secretary of the Elders’ Council, Elder Yemi Akinwonmi in the same vein said that Onabiyi has no say on the policy of the party.

He said that Onabiyi only made the statement on his own and that it was never the opinion of the Council that Yewa will not produce the Governor in 2011.
He then said that the constitution of the party recognized zoning and rotation of political positions.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
