It was made known that it appears to be no end to the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party as its National Secretary, Adewale Oladipo, on Sunday accused the South-West leaders of the PDP of sowing a seed of discord in the party.
Oladipo, who was reacting to a call on Friday by the South-West leaders on the members of the PDP National Working Committee to resign their positions, said it was unfortunate that they ( the South-West leaders) who should know better had resorted to divisive politics.
The leaders had in a statement after their meeting in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti hinged their call for the resignation of the NWC members, including the National Chairman of the PDP, on the party’s poor performance in the just concluded general elections.
A former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Bode George, who read the statement, argued that the resignation of the committee members would pave the way for a smooth restructuring of the party.
But Oladipo, in a statement, said it was unfortunate that George and others who could not deliver their wards during the elections could be seeking their ouster.
He said, “My attention has been drawn to a communiqué purportedly issued by some PDP leaders in the South-West calling on me, the National Secretary Prof. Adewale Oladipo and the National Auditor, Alhaji Adewole Adeyanju, to resign from the PDP NWC.
“However, a very careful examination of the inherent breaches in the procedures adopted in the convening of the meeting as well as the content and tone of its resolution shows an orchestration by a few individuals bent on sowing a seed of discord within the PDP fold in the zone.
“This is evident in the fact that the said communiqué in no way reflected the views of majority of those who attended the meeting, neither did it tally with the opinion of the generality of our party members in the region.”
