The Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) in Ondo state has
accused the ruling party All
Progressive Congress (APC)
of supporting the Senator Ali-
Modu Sheriff faction of the
party to further cause crisis in
the PDP.
In a communique issued
and signed by the party
state Chairman, Mr Clement
Faboyede at the end of its
stakeholders meeting held in
Akure, the state capital said
“we condemn emphatically
the desperate politics that the
APC has continued to prosecute
in the nation, it’s penchant
for undermining institutions,
compromising elections and
also the sponsorship of crisis
in our Party by clandestinely
providing logistic support to
the Sherif group.”
The meeting which was
attended by the former Deputy
National Chairman (South)
of the party, Chief Olabode
George, the National Vice
Chairman (South West) Dr
Eddy Olafeso, the governorship
candidate of the party in the
last governorship election in the
state, Mr Eyitayo Jegede (SAN)
and zonal Secretary of the party
in the South West, Rev Bunmi
Jenyo therefore condemned
what it called desperate politics
being played on the PDP by
APC at the national level.
The communique reads in part
“we declare our unalloyed and
total support for the National
Caretaker Committee of the
party under the O leadership of
Senator Ahmed Markafi as the
only body empowered by the
Porthacourt Convention of the
Party to continue to steer the
affairs of the Party. We support
their decision to appeal the
judgment of the Porthacourt
division of the Court of Appeal
to the Supreme Court.
“We equally recall the prompt
role the Supreme Court played
in the matter of determining who
the flag bearer of our Party is in
the last election and therefore
do urge it to please adjudicate
promptly again on this matter
in the interest of justice.
“We also take due notice
of the continuing perfidious
and meddle some activities of
Senator Sherif and his band of
fifth columnists. We condemn
them for being willing tools
in the hand of the APC, we
however wish to assure them
that history and posterity will
be harsh on them for this infamy
and betrayal.’
“We also repose our total
confidence in the Zonal
Executive of the party under
the Chairmanship of Dr Eddy
Olafeso. Therefore we pledge
our unhindered and
continuing support for its actions
as it continues to discharge its
responsibilities to the Party at
the Zonal level.
“We again restate our
confidence in the State Executive Committee of the party under
the Chairmanship of Engr
Clement Faboyede. Our
support to it remains total and
unhindered as it continues to
reposition the Party in Ondo
“We as Stakeholders
of the party restate our
commitment to the PDP
and our absolute desire to
stand firm and promote its
interest in our various wards
across the state. We wish to
assure the generality of our
members that our party will
certainly overcome its current
challenges and thrive again”.
The party however restated
its belief in the leadership of
Senator Ahmed Markafi as
the National Chairman of the
party’s caretaker committee,
just as members of the party
resolved to stand firm and
remain committed to actions
that will reposition the party
and return it to its glory once
