Ogun PDP Governorship Aspirant Seeks Dissolution of State Executive
All seems not to be well with the People's Democratic Party, PDP in Ogun State following a fresh case instituted against the party.
A governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Segun Sowunmi, has approached the court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan to set aside the judgment of Justice A. A. Akinyemi of the Ogun State High court which struck out his suit seeking the dissolution of the state party executives.
Sowunmi had approached an Ogun state High court to challenge a statement credited to a fellow contestant, Hon. Ladi Adebutu that his nomination form was procured for him by members of the state executives.
Sowunmi in a press conference in Abeokuta, the state capital, prayed the court to dissolve the state executives on the grounds of violation of their oath of office and bias, seeking an interlocutory injunction restraining the executives from conducting the ward and state congress.
Sowunmi in his notice of appeal claimed that the judge was in grave error when he held that only the Federal High Court can exercise jurisdiction in redressing the appellant's complaint.
Sowunmi says he has written the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party, seeking the dissolution of the state executive over an alleged violation of their oath of office.
The PDP Governorship aspirant accused the state executives of the party of being biased and compromising the process of the forthcoming governorship primary election of the party.
