Oyinlola Has Lost Moral Ground To Claim Membership Of PDP, Says Scribe

Olagunsoye OyinlolaThe National Secretary of PDP, Prof. Wale Oladipo, said Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola had lost moral ground and political legitimacy to lay claim to the party.

The remark is contained in a statement issued by Mr Abiodun Ojo, his Special Assistant on Special Duties in Abuja on Friday.

In the statement, he also said Oyinlola, former National Secretary of the PDP and Governor of Osun, had lost political relevance in his state.

Oyinola, suspended from the PDP on Nov. 11 by its National Working Committee (NWC), insists that he remained the party’s national secretary.

He was suspended from the party after an Appeal Court recently ordered that he be reinstated as national secretary.

Oyinlola was suspended along with Alhaji Abubakar Baraje, leader of the PDP splinter group, Dr Sam Jaja and Ibrahim Kazaure.

The statement added that since Oladipo emerged as PDP scribe, he had deliberately refrained from joining issues with Oyinlola because of his respect for old relationship.

It said Oyinlola’s recent activities raised many questions about his understanding of politics and suggesting a political disorientation of sorts.

“We are constrained to issue this statement on the recent conduct and pronouncements of Oyinlola.

“His disloyal and theatrical betrayal of allies and party that made him, disrobe him of any further claims to a party he has done so much to destroy.

“We affirm that Oyinlola has for long lost his political troops in Osun due to chronic betrayal and manifest self-centeredness”.

According to the statement, the former governor is jumping from one platform to the other and window-shopping in the judiciary.

“Members rejoice at Oyinlola’s exit from the party and we thank well-meaning Nigerians for their concern and inquiries’’, the statement added.

It restated Oladapo’s loyalty to the party’s national leader, President Goodluck Jonathan and commitment to harmonious working relationship with National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and members of NWC.

In a reaction, Oyinlola advised Jonathan to be wary of people who were out to pursue hidden agenda.

Such persons, he added, could disappoint him if they failed in their rabid ambition to get what they wanted. (NAN)
