Immediate past governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala yesterday expressed joy over what he described as the removal and disgrace of National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
In a statement Thursday night, Alao-Akala said: “We join millions of PDP members to celebrate the official removal/disgrace from office of Bamanga Tukur at today’s (yesterday’s) PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting. Today’s (yesterday’s) belated action has finally brought to an end the two-year reign of impunity, incompetence, propaganda and politics of Bubayaya and destruction visited on PDP by Tukur.
“We salute the courage of democrats and stakeholders (in and out of the PDP), whose patriotic resistance brought Tukur’s reign of political darkness to an end today. We urge (members of) the PDP NEC, as they meet next week, to choose a new chairman – in compliance with Article 47 – to first of all install the substantive PDP National Secretary, (Prince Olagunsoye) Oyinlola and reverse all impunities/evils committed by Tukur before peace can ever return”.
