0 55

Some leaders of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti South Senatorial District have rejected purported plans by some members of the party’s State Working Committee to zone offices ahead of the forthcoming congress.

The leaders who vehemently expressed dissatisfaction over the zoning plan cautioned the party’s leadership against any act capable of creating an unnecessary crisis in the state chapter.

This was contained in a communique issued by the stakeholders at the end of a meeting and signed by the former acting governor, Hon Diran Odeyemi, southwest PDP publicity secretary, Sanya Atofarati, Mrs Titi Akindahunsi, Chief Bade Adara, Ekiti South senatorial chairman, Chief Tijani amongst other leaders.

The communique reads in part: “The assembly of the PDP South Senatorial District leaders commended the tenacity and steadfastness of members across the district particularly in upholding the integrity of our party despite the challenges facing the party.

“We urge the state organ of the party to work in unity and in line with the extant provisions of the PDP constitution such that all efforts are geared towards the unity of members across the state than any act capable of disintegrating the party in a quest to actualize personal aspirations.

“The attempt by interested parties in the SWC to sit in judgment over matters of zoning of the states excos in which they are interested parties is condemnable.

“We believe in a healthy and democratic competition devoid of any acrimony and animosity. We therefore outrightly reject and distance the south senatorial district from the purported zoning which is pre-emptive of the State Executive Council’s decision as the highest decision-making organ in the state as enshrined in the PDP Constitution.

“We commend the efforts of the State chairman Engr Alaba Agboola for his relentless efforts in putting the Ekiti PDP in its rightful position as a viable opposition to the directionless government of the ruling APC.

“We acknowledge the readiness of our leaders to work together and achieve a united front to prioritize the collective interest of the south senatorial district over and above personal and group interest which is the drive towards a shared prosperity.

“We affirm our commitment to the leadership of Senator Biodun Olujimi with the conviction that all other well-meaning leaders and members will collaborate with her to achieve our common goal of raising high the PDP flag and returning the party to a winning streak in future elections”, it added.
