Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo State, who feel unhappy with the handling of the party matters by the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, have passed a vote of no confidence on the Governor. Their displeasure was made known during a meeting in Ibadan, Oyo State capital on Monday, September 20,2021.
Some of the meeting attendees were former House of Representatives leader, Mulikat Adeola Akande, former Deputy Governor of the state, Chief Azeem Gbolarumi, Bisi Olopoenia, Engineer Femi Babalola, Princess Aderonke Adedoja and Ahmed Aranse, among other members.
The dissatisfied members pointed out that they met on Monday to deliberate on how to salvage the party ahead of the forthcoming congresses of the party, which are expected to start at the end of September,2021.
At the end of the meeting, the aggrieved members issued a statement, alleging that Governor Makinde had hijacked the party structures which they were working hard to retrieve from him.
Their words:"The meeting rose with the passing of the vote of no confidence on the leadership of Oyo State PDP. Members are urged to conduct themselves for the Congress. The venue remains the ward meeting venue in each of the 351 wards in the state".
They therefore admonished members not to engage in any hooliganism or brigandage. They assured members that efforts were on to ensure that the party was back to members.
