OYO PDP DIRECTS RAUF OLANIYAN TO RESIGN WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Oyo State chapter, has told the Deputy Governor, Engr. Rauf Aderemi Olaniyan to resign immediately since he has willfully abandoned the political party and the votes that produced him as such on the party’s joint ticket.

The ruling party warned against any attempt by Engr. Olaniyan and his new party to steal Oyo people’s mandate through the backdoor after the last ruling party was utterly rejected at the 2019 governorship poll.

The statement follows the Deputy Governor’s dramatic defection from the ruling PDP to one of the opposition parties in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday.

In a press release today, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Akeem Olatunji, noted that the PDP leadership in the state, southwest region and national levels all intervened at different intervals to resolve the situation fuelling the suspected defection plan to no avail.

Disappointed by comments credited to the deputy governor after officially announcing his defection from the PDP to the APC that even though he has left PDP, he still remains the deputy governor, the ruling party cautioned against what it called selfish motivation noting that such a move amount to daylight robbery of the people’s mandate.
