Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Makanjuola Ogundipe has said that Governors Olusegun Mimiko and Ayo Fayose, of Ondo and Ekiti States respectively, are plunging the party into crisis.

Ogundipe, who is the PDP Vice-Chairman in the South-West, made the comment in a statement released on Sunday, May 15, 2016 after Mimiko and Fayose conducted a congress in the area and elected new officials.

The statement reads:

It is on this note that I wish to implore all our respectable governors, leaders, elders and other stakeholders, to stand up for the truth and caution governors Fayose and Mimiko. They should desist from plunging the party into avoidable crisis.

The decision of the national leadership of our great party and INEC to obey the court order is commendable.  However, they must go beyond mere rhetoric and stand firm. Going forward, they have a duty to issue reports invalidating the exercise even before the court nullifies the contraption called the zonal congress.

They should show to all and sundry that the age of impunity and political cum executive recklessness is gone for good. And that no one, no matter how powerful, is bigger than the law.

For instance, the so-called officers and delegates who emerged from the illegal congress could contaminate the national convention and render its outcome null and void, if they are allowed to participate in the convention at the expense of the legitimate officers and delegates.

All we are saying is that there is no justification for the election of new officers into executive positions in the zone when the tenure of the current officers has not expired.
