PDP NWC Ratifies Removal of Osun State Chairman


By Chuks Okocha

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday ratified the removal from office of the Osun State Chairman of the party, Hon. Adesoji Adagunodo, following the validation of a vote-of-no-confidence passed on him by the state executive.

The decision of the NWC is consequent upon the report of the sub-committee set up by the NWC which investigated and validated the allegations as well as the vote-of-no-confidence passed against Adagunodo by the state executive in line with section 59 (2) (4) of the PDP constitution.

According to a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the NWC has directed the state Deputy Chairman, Hon. Sunday Akanfe, to take charge of the affairs of the state chapter of the party pending the emergence of a substantive state chairman in keeping with the dictates of the PDP constitution.

The PDP wished the former state chairman well in his future endeavours as he continues to contribute his quota to the growth and development of the party.
