PDP Crisis: I Wasn’t Chased Out Of Office By Angry Youths – Oladipo

Wale OladipoThe erstwhile National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Wale Oladipo, has denied claims that he was chased out of the national secretariat of the party in Abuja yesterday by irate youth.
Some youths supporting the leadership of the Ahmed Makarfi-led caretaker committee on Wednesday invaded the Wadata Plaza national secretariat of the PDP and chased everyone out.
The building was on Monday taken over by the Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of the party, of which Oladipo is a member.
Reacting to the speculation that he was chased out of the national secretariat by the pro-Makarfi youths, Oladipo, in a statement he personally signed yesterday, said he actually resumed duty at the party secretariat in the morning alongside the National Auditor of the party, Alhaji Adewole Adeyanju.
According to him, he witnessed the activities of some “miscreants”, who invaded the party secretariat to cause trouble over nothing.
He, however, insisted that he voluntarily left the office after he was done with his work without being harassed.
“The news that I was chased out of office is a lie. No one touched me, nor was I in anyway compelled to vacate office.
“I left office when I was through with all I needed to do, same with the National Auditor who came to my office before he took his leave.
“I wish to advice all PDP members to discountenance the fake news peddled by the enemies of our Party, surely we shall soon get over the get over the internal schism in our party”.
“I also want to appeal to all parties to this conflict to sheath their sword and refrain from all acts of lawlessness and embrace the rule of law as the only panacea to moving our Party forward”.
