THE National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has affirmed Alhaji Kunmi Mustapha as the rightful state Chairman of the party in Oyo State.
Mega Icon Magazine learnt that while upholding the list of executives that belongs to ACCORD, SDP, Labour Party and AD, the party instructed that the executive slots allocated to the old PDP block with the exemption of the State chairmanship position will be investigated for necessary review if need be.
In a chat with Mega Icon Magazine, the former Oyo Accord Party spokesman, Engr. Akeem Olatunji hinted that the Ahmed Makarfi led NCC made this revelation during a meeting with the Oyo State leadership of the party at Wadata House, Abuja on Friday.
It was gathered that the meeting also had in attendance party faithfuls who felt aggrieved over the results of the State Congress held at Watershed events centre in Ibadan.
According to him, the Panel upheld Kunmi’s victory having examined all the petitions filed before it.
“To this end, the leadership enjoins all party members and supporters in Oyo State, to put the issue regarding the State Congress behind them.
“We should work together as one indivisible family ahead of the 2019 elections,” quoting the National Caretaker Chairman.
In his remarks, the newly elected Chairman, Alhaji Kunmi while playing host to party faithfuls who thronged his home yesterday described his victory as an act of God, calling on his contender to join him in the arduous task of rescuing Oyo State from the misrule of APC.
He, however urged all PDP members to see themselves as brothers and sisters with a common goal to contribute positively to the growth of the State and by extension, Nigeria.
On the contrary, the defunct SDP publicist in Oyo state, Mr Akeem Azeez through his facebook page dismissed the information describing it as untrue.
His statement reads, “this is far from the truth as both leaders from both congresses are meeting and holding consultations with National leaders to find amicable solution to the disagreement that led to the parallel congresses.
“We are part of the reconciliation meeting held in Abuja on the congresses last Wednesday and the National leaders of the party led by the National Caretaker chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi and there was no time did the party leaders made such statement. They have only promised to investigate the matter and make their findings and resolutions known to the general public”.
He, therefore enjoined party members and members of the public to disregard such information and wait till party National leaders make available official statement on the final verdict on the matter.
