The crisis that shook the Ogun state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) recently took on another dimension after the suspension of the party’s state chairman, Mr. Samson Bamgbose, for anti-party activities.
The party’s State Executive Committee in an extraordinary meeting held on November 9, 2020, suspended Bamgbose and others for anti-party activities.
The committee also appointed Yewa North Local Government Attorney Boladale Sanni as Acting Chairman pursuant to Article 47 (6) of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017).
Other suspended Exco members are Chief Kehinde Oladeinde (former state vice president), Barr. Kunle Bolujoko (ex-president of the Ogun East Senate), Ms. Bimbo Lanre-Balogun (ex-state leader), Hon. Sunmola Kayode (ex-president of the Ogun West Senate), Alh. Kola Akinyemi (former President of the Ogun Central Senate) and Hon. Alaba Adewunmi (former State Auditor).
While Bamgbose has been referred to the party’s National Executive Committee for further disciplinary action, other suspended exco members must appear before a seven-man disciplinary committee headed by Dr. Remilekun Bakare.
