    PDP Crisis deepens as Lagos chapter disagrees with Gov Makinde over call for Ayu’s sack

    Crisis seems to be brewing in the south west zone of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP ) as its Lagos state chapter has expressed displeasure with the Executive Governor of Oyó State and leader of the party in the zone Seyi Makinde over his call for the removal of the National Chairman of the party Dr. Iyorcha Ayu from office

    This is contained in statement issued by the state publicity Secretary of PDP Hon.Hakeem Amode in lagos on friday.

    The statement reads:

    “We believe that the Peoples Democratic Party – PDP had survived as the only political party since the inception of the recent democratic dispensation due to its adherence to the constitution of the party, rules of law and regulations guiding the administration of the party.” Amode stated.

    “As much as we extoled His Excellency Engr. Seyi Makinde as our leader in the southwest but there are no prior meeting where such agreement was reached with the leadership of the party in Lagos State where such position was agreed.” He said

    The Lagos state leadership of the party will like to commend the national leadership of our great party PDP in their efforts to rescue the country from its current misery brought upon the people by the current government of APC.

    The party appealed to the amiable leadership of its party in the Southwest region to work together to return the Peoples Democratic Party – PDP to its glorious days in the administration of the southwest region of the country. Pointing out that the focus of the party by now should be directed mainly to encouraging its teeming members to rally round the party’s candidates vying for the House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate and Governorship positions and ensure that they win in 2023 general elections.

    According to him achieving this feat in Ogun, Lagos, Ekiti, Ondo, and Oyo State as demonstrated in Osun State will in no doubt reiterate the importance of southwest in the affairs of the party and further solidify its position for any position that Lagos Chapter may take in the affairs of the national administration of the great party in due time.

    “Considering our position as the state in the heart of the coming election, hosting the APC Presidential Candidate and a preferred opposition party to win the election, Lagos State PDP leadership cannot afford a disunited regional leadership nor does a
    divided national leadership helps our noble cause of liberating the people of our state. In view of the foregoing, we appeal to individuals who view the removal of the National Chairman as a way to resolve to the lingering internal crisis rocking the party to have a rethink, respect for the constitution of the party and see the need to form a solidly viable alliance that can guarantee our party victory in the next general elections.” Amode stated
