The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Ogun State has withdrawn from the local government council elections scheduled to hold on Saturday.

 

PDP chairman in the state, Sikirulai Ogundele, said in a statement on Thursday that the decision followed a judgment of an Ogun State High Court, in a suit between him and the State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC).

 

Mr Ogundele had sued OGSIEC for dealing with a faction in the party, alleging that the commission is assisting the opposition to destabilise the PDP in the state.

 

The OGSIEC chairman, Babatunde Osibodu, however, denied fuelling the crisis in the PDP, saying he handed over the forms of the party to the faction with the authentic documents.

Ogundele said in the statement: “(Following) the judgement of the Ogun State High Court, Isabo in suit no M/55/2021 between Sikirulai Ogundele VS OGSIEC, affirming the consent judgement of the Federal High Court, Abuja as delivered on 22nd June, 2021, the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under the able chairmanship of Alhaji (Dr) Sikirulai Ogundele hereby makes the following pronouncement:

“That consequent upon the said judgement in suit M/55/2021, Ogun State PDP withdraws its participation in the Ogun State Local Government Election which is scheduled for Saturday 24th July, 2021.


“That all candidates of the party who have been earlier screened by the party to contest in the LG election and all our teeming party members and loyal supporters are enjoined to remain calm and sustain their confidence in the leadership of the party.”
