Gale of Suspension Hits SW PDP as Omisore is Suspnded

This is season of suspension in the South West region of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Since the judgment of Court of Appeal on Wednesday that gave vent to the National Working Committee led by the Senator Ahmed Makarfi faction, a gale of suspension has hit the party.
Earlier Friday Ogun chapter suspended Senator Buruji Kashamu., representing Ogun East at the National Assembly.
The latest suspension is from Osun where a faction of Party in Osun State has suspended a former Deputy Governor of the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore for allegedly engaging in anti-party activities.
This suspension of Omisore and other PDP chieftains was contained in a statement issued on Friday and signed by Chairman, Soji Adagunodo and the Secretary, Bola Ajao.
Apart from Omisore, the Adagunodo-led executive also suspended the Chairman of the other faction of the party, Dr. Bayo Faforiji; Bunmi Jenyo; Chief Ojo Williams and Bade Falade for the same offence.
The statement read, ”The state executive committee received recommendation from various wards to local governments and senatorial districts, to suspend the following PDP members : Dr. Bayo Faforiji, Senator Iyiola Omisore, Rev. Bunmi Jenyo, Chief Ojo Williams and Hon. Bade Falade.
“In accordance with the provisions of the PDP constitution, and inherent powers vested on the the State executive committee of the party, the said individuals are hereby suspended as recommended.”
The Adagunodo-led faction said Omisore should go and clear his name with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission before seeking to participate in the affairs of party.
Recall, a faction loyal to Omisore had on Thursday expelled the National Secretary of the Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction, Prof. Wale Oladipo and Adagunodo.
The factional Chairman of the party, Dr. Bayo Faforiji, who made the announcement during a congress at the PDP secretariat located along Osogbo/Gbongan Road on Thursday also expelled the immediate Chairman of the party, Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa as well as Secretary of Adagunodo-led executive, Bola Ajao.
Faforiji alleged that the expelled PDP leaders were involved in instituting the suit which nearly prevented the PDP governorship candidate in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede from participating in the election.
Meanwhile, Senator Kashamu, has denied rumour of his suspension from the Peoples Democratic Party.
This denial came hours after the Ogun State chapter of the PDP had allegedly suspended him and six others for their role in the crisis that engulfed the party in Ondo State.
Their suspension reportedly took immediate effect on Friday, November 25.
Others allegedly suspended with Kashamu are: Messrs Bayo Dayo, Pegba Otemolu, Semiu Shodipo, Fatai Adeyanju, Segun Seriki, Daisi Akitan and Bowale Solaja.
But Kashamu said nobody can suspend him.
