Ogun PDP Sets Up Panel To Probe Lawmakers


The lingering crisis in the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took a new dimension over the weekend, as the party set up a 7-man disciplinary committee to probe members of the State House of Assembly.

The lingering crisis in the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took a new dimension over the weekend, as the party set up a 7-man disciplinary committee to probe members of the State House of Assembly.

P.M.News gathered that the panel, which is headed by the state chairman of the party, Chief Joju Fadairo, is to probe what was described as anti-party activities of the lawmakers in Abuja, last week.

Part of the allegations levelled against the state lawmakers was their meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, and national leaders of the party in Abuja during which they allegedly insisted on the reinstatement of Senator Tunde Osholake, as the chairman of the party in Ogun Central Senatorial District.

They were alleged to have kicked against the decision of the Ogun State PDP to replace Osholake with Bode Mustapha, an action that was described as anti-party. P.M.News sources revealed that the lawmakers would be summoned this week by the party’s probe panel, to explain why they usurped the party’s function regarding issues bordering on elective offices. When contacted on the development, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly declined comment, saying “I will talk at the appropriate time”.

A source in the state assembly, however, told P.M.News that the state party chairman, Joju Fadairo, was only playing out a script written by the state governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel to frustrate the lawmakers. The source said that the development has continued to tear the state executive and legislative arms apart.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
