By Ojo Peter, Ibadan
Some aggrieved members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday met again ahead of the planned congress of the party and passed a ‘vote of no confidence’ on the leadership of Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
At an event attended by; Mulikat Akande Adeola, Nureni Akanbi, AbdulRasheed Olopoeyan, Gbolarumi Hazeem, Femi Babalola and a host of others including members drawn from the 33 Local Government Areas of the State, the aggrieved leaders vowed to ensure they do everything to prevent Makinde from getting the Party’s ticket for a second term in office.
The members, who voiced their displeasure, said against the governor’s promise before and during the election, they have been neglected while those who were not around during the election are the ones benefiting from government.
Saying that they have accepted what has befallen them, the leaders urged members to be prepared for the congress which begins this week.
“Go to your wards, mobilize your people. Don’t fight anybody. Record whatever happens and leave us to do the remaining in Abuja,” Akande-Adeola assured.
Another Party stakeholder, Akanbi, who spoke earlier, said never again would they entrust their destinies in the hands of someone like the incumbent governor.
