The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ogun State chapter, Chief Adebayo Dayo has reacted to a report that the National Chairman of the Party, Uche Secondus met with the members of his faction to unite them with Sikirulayi Ogundele- led faction in Abuja on Wednesday.

He maintained that none of his members were at the meeting with Secondus in Abuja, saying that only the former secretary of the party, Semiu Shodipo who has been suspended for alleged misconduct against the party constitution, was there.

The chairman noted that the national chairman did not want unity in the party, saying that what he is after is how to get monthly dollars from the party.

Dayo disclosed this on Thursday during a press conference held at the party secretariat, Okemosan, Abeokuta, Ogun state.

He insisted that there was no reconciliatory deal between his faction and Ladi Adebutu’s faction, adding that the national chairman was just playing bread and butter politics.

According to him, those who had meeting with the national chairman were hungry people, as they were looking for money by all means to eat.

The chairman said, ”Ladi Adebutu has once called me to go and meet his father to collect huge money from him so I can join him but I refused. The national chairman is only interested in monthly dollars from the party but he does not care about unity in the PDP in Ogun state.

”Those who represented my faction in Abuja have already resigned from the party, Semiu Sodipo has been suspended from the party for alleged misconduct.

”The national excos never bothered to go through letters that has been given to them by Bayo Dayo but whatever happens in the state will be taken to Abuja. I don’t blame them because they are playing bread and butter politics.

”The court and INEC recognize us because we always abide by the rule of law, unlike other faction. They are aware of what is going on and if care is not taken we will sue them for contempt of court.

”Uche Secondus does not know anybody, they are just whom they said they are because they are nobody. None of them is from state executives except Semiu Shodipo.”

He warned the national working committee from recognizing any signed agreement, saying that his faction is ready to initiate legal action against the national chairman for content of court.

The chairman added that his faction has not suspended its proposed party Congress, saying that the Congress will come up on March of 7, 2020.
