Ogun PDP Members Threatens To Leave Party Over Marginalization

A political group under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, ‘The Imole Group’ has threatened its state chapter as well as the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to pull out of PDP over the issues of agreed slots to the group.

The group, in a statement issued in Abeokuta, stated that ‘The Imole Group’ and its over 150,000 members throughout the state left the All Progressives Congress (APC) due to the high-handedness of the incumbent governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun, and his failure to recognise the party organ in the state upon his emergence.

It stated that sequel to the exodus of its members into PDP, an agreement was reached with the party whereby the group was promised one senatorial slot, three House of Representatives’ slots, and eight House of Assembly slots, predicated on a 60/40 per cent agreement.

According to the group “this was the basis upon which the group came into PDP and to our utter dismay this agreement was not honoured by the party in the scheme of things, as when the time came to honour the party reneged. This depicts an attendant height of deceit unprecedented in our sojourn politically as a group and as such we may be necessitated to deal with any other political party willing to show sincerity to our course as a group.”

The group, therefore, noted that “this is inimical to the growth of the party and all these atrocious deeds are an open secret in Ogun state.”

Its added: “Hence if all effort to correct this situation should fail at the top echelon of the PDP we may be left with no choice than to move out with all our over 150, 000 registered members to a more peaceful and secured political party once negotiation is concluded and be assured in clear terms that PDP has lost out in Ogun State.”

It urged the leadership of the party at the top echelon to ensure an expedient amicable resolution of the political imbroglio to avert a mass exodus of people from the party.
