Mr. Segun Oni
By Toba Suleiman
The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) in Ekiti State has commended the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to nullify the congress which produced Mr. Segun Oni, as the National Vice-Chairman of the party in the South-west and other members of the executive.
The conference commendation was contained in a statement issued by the Chairman of the CNPP in the state, Mr. Tunji Ogunlola, and made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti, by the Secretary of CNPP, Victor Akinola.
According to the statement, “The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties wishes to commend the bold step taken by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP-led by Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, for the dissolution of the South-west PDP executives premised on the illegalities which characterised the conduct of their congress in 2012.
“The step taken is justified following the series of suits that were filed on the matter. The CNPP is also urging the National Working Committee of the PDP to look into cases like this in some states in the South-west.”
Ogunlola also hailed the leadership of the PDP for the constitution of a 17-man caretaker committee, which was headed by Chief Isola Filani, to run the affairs of the party in the South-west.
Describing Filani as respected and reliable leader, Ogunlola advised him to restore peace in the PDP in the South-west by working out how to amicably resolve all the crises rocking the PDP in the region.
