The Osun State People’s Democratic Party has announced that the location of the party secretariat in the state has been changed.
PDP made this announcement on Monday in a statement signed by Hon. Olasoji Adagunodo, the PDP State Chairman and Hon. Yemi Adepoju, Assistant Secretary, to communicate the resolution of the State Working Committee meeting.
According to PDP, the state secretariat has been moved to King’s Square, Opposite Biket Junction, no 9 Ikirun Road Osogbo.
PDP said the location was secured during the regime of Elder Sunday Akanfe Atidade as Acting Chairman and paid for by well-known and prominent leaders of the Party.
“Please, take our sincere apologies for the inconveniences this sudden change of the party secretariat may cause you as individuals and as members of our political party and to whom may be concerned, be informed of the change,” the statement read.
The Committee also reslolved that the Administrative Director, Alhaji Sikiru Mustapha should take the inventory of all the Party Properties in his care and keep till the time of taking custody and moving them into the new office location.
PDP said it has recognized that the state of the Party is not strong enough as a viable opposition for about two years due to internal crisis on leadership of the Party which has been on for some time adding that political crisis and issues are part of the democratization system and the way the leadership of the Party handles it is more important to the survival of the party.
About the part crisis, the committee stated that it has resolved that the leadership committee on Appraisal and Reconciliation headed by Alhaji Shuaib Oyedokun should do everything within their power to see to the end of all the crisis in the Party.
PDP implored the Peace and Appraisal Committees to urgently visit, invite and liase with individuals or groups that are ready to foster unity in the party including the National Reconciliation Committee headed by former Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki when and if necessary.
Furthermore, PDP appealed to ‘those who are desperately fanning embers of discord and encouraging division to desist forthwith’.
“We also use this opportunity to appeal to all members of our party to solicit for peace as we have been reliably informed that some groups of people are pursuing the Agendas of suspending some members of the party and in some instances still pursuing the expulsion of some members of the party, especially the State Chairman, Hon Soji Adagunodo, even when they know what they are planning runs contrary to court process , order and even the constitution of the party which doesn’t give them the authority and jurisdiction or power to do such.
“They are warned to desist because it is obvious that this will further greatly affect, further decimate the fortunes of the party in 2022 and polarise the party the more.
“The National Chairman and NWC members of the party at the National Headquarters should be wary of these set of people who are vehement in their clandestine moves and arrangements only to destabilize the party,” the statement read.
