The crisis rocking Oyo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taken another dimension as a faction opposed to Governor Seyi Makinde opened a parallel party office in Ibadan.

The Nation gathered the move was in preparation for the party’s congress coming up in few weeks.

But Publicity Secretary of the faction loyal to Makinde, Engr. Akeem Olatunji, described their action as a comedy.

The Nation learnt some PDP members in the state are not happy with their exclusion from the running of the party by Makinde.

Oyo PDP secretariat was originally located at Molete, Ibadan.

But the parallel party secretariat is at No 2 Okunola Abass Street, Bodija estate, Ibadan.

Olatunji told The Nation the secretariat at Molete remains the only recognised in the state.

He declared those behind opening of the new office are joking because it contravenes constitution of the party, vowing those bent on causing troubles will face the full wrath of the law.

According to him: “Political party is not what someone can just come up with. It has to be registered with INEC, we are the only recognised chapter of PDP in the state.

“If anybody is preparing for the congress and they feels that they are popular, they should go and obtained form in preparation for the congress.

“The new office can never exist and if it does, it’s just a comedy, it is illegal because it’s been opened by faceless people. It is not in existence because if at all there is going to be a secretariat, there should be executives running it.”

Some aggrieved PDP chieftains, including Hon. Mulikat Akande- Adeola, Hon. Muraina Ajibola, Alhaji AbdulRasheed Adebisi Olopoeyan, Engr. Femi Babalola Jogor and others had convened a meeting of members across the state to ‘salvage’ the party. (The Nation)
