We won’t allow Oyinlola to return as national secretary –S’West pdp


Prince-Olagunsoye-Oyinlola-360x225Against the background of the plan  by members of the new Peoples Democratic Party to ensure the resumption of former Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola as National Secretary of the mainstream PDP, the leadership of the party in the South -West has told Oyinlola to perish the thought.
The leadership of the party, consisting of the Zonal Caretaker Committee, the State Chairmen Forum, the Elders Committee, the Stakeholders Forum, the Organisation and Mobilisation Committee, the Women and Youth fora, said, “It is height of self-delusion for Oyinlola and his co-travellers to imagine that he would return as the National Secretary of our great party, the PDP when a Motion for Stay of Execution has been filed at the Court of Appeal and there is a pending appeal against at the Supreme.”
In a statement issued yesterday by the Acting Chairman, Caretaker Committee, South West PDP, Mr. Adedeji Doherty, the party said “It is an indubitable fact that he has since left our great party for a renegade group known as ‘New PDP’ that has been outlawed by a court of competent jurisdiction.
“The said group has been meeting with the opposition All Progressives Congress. In fact, it was on the basis of these and other anti-party acts that some of his loyalists were recently suspended by the Osun State chapter of the party.
“The party wondered where Oyinlola and his supporters seek to return him, asking “is it as the National Secretary of a party he voluntarily left or as the National Secretary of his outlawed and illegal group? Why do they want to reap when they did not have the patience for harvest to come? If they knew they had a good case, why did they jump ship?”
Meanwhile, the PDP in Osun State has said that Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola could not be reinstated as the national secretary of the party.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Alhaji Ganiyu Olaoluwa, who said this in an interview with our correspondent in Osogbo on Friday,  said that restoring Oyinlola as the PDP secretary would amount to making him scribe for two parties.
Oyinlola, an indigene of Okuku in Odo Otin Local Government Area Osun State is a former governor of the state on the platform of the PDP. He was also the national secretary of the PDP before he was removed by a Federal High Court.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will proceed to the Supreme Court to challenge Wednesday’s Appeal Court’s reinstatement of former Osun governor, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, as its National Secretary.
The Deputy National Publicicty Secretary of the party, Alhaji Abdullahi Jalo, disclosed this to newsmen in Gombe, on Friday.
Jalo said that a legal team of the party was already preparing papers to appeal the judgement, adding that Oyinlola would not be sworn-in.
“Now, we are going to apply for a stay of execution. Oyinlola should not be allowed to even go close to Wadata Plaza, the national secretariat of the party.
