The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the judgment delivered by the State High Court sitting in Ile-Ife has nothing to do on the ward adhoc delegates congress holding on February 16 and 17, 2022, across the 332 wards in the state,
The party made this known in a statement signed by the PDP Secretary in Osun State, Prince Bola Ajao, on Wednesday.
The statement read, “The attention of the the Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has been drawn to a judgement of an Ile-Ife high court on the leadership of the party in the state.
“The PDP in Osun State wishes to inform our teeming party members that the purported judgement of the Osun State High Court sitting in Ile-Ife has no bearing on the ward Adhoc delegates Congress holding today and tomorrow across the 332 wards in the state.
The purported judgement we must emphasize, has nothing to do with the ongoing Ward Adhoc Congress as such exercise remains an exclusive preserve of the national office of our great party.
“In any case, the legal team of our party adequately took notice of all that transpired in the Ile-Ife High Court in the course of the litigation but as a law abiding political party, the legal team of the party has expeditiously carried out our instructions to appeal the judgement immediately.
“Therefore, we must note for the sake of emphasis that Congresses as adhoc degates are not conducted by state chapters of the party. The processes for the Congress have since been kick-started by the appropriate authorities of our party and all stakeholders are being carried along for a successful exercise.
“We are not oblivious of the fact that some elements in the party in the state are adamant in playing the destabilizing cards of Apc in our party despite passionate appeal of the National Working Committee led by the National Chairman, Dr Iyochia Ayu.
“We wish to enjoin all our party members to remain calm and go ahead with modalities for the Adhoc Delegate Congress as the leadership of our party remains resolute in our determination to rescue Osun State from the mis-rule of APC and their shameless collaborators within our ranks,” the party noted.
