Things seem to have completely fallen apart in the Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a former governorship aspirant of the party in the last election, Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, yesterday called the bluff of Senator Ademola Adeleke, whom he alleged to have been conspiring against him to boot him out of the party through blackmail and lies.
Recall that it was Ogunbiyi that polled the closet figures to Senator Adeleke in the last PDP governorship primary election that produced him (Adeleke) as the party candidate.
Ogunbiyi in a statement by his Press Secretary, Ismail Afolabi, alleged that in the last few days Adeleke family and his supporters “had orchestrated another round of campaign of calumny and physical attacks on my supporters, assaulting and threatening them and their families with expulsion from the party.
“Yesterday, acting the script of the Adelekes, South West Zonal Secretary of our party, Reverend Bunmi Jenyo, in a press release insinuated that the action initiated by some aggrieved members of our party in court was ‘pre-planned, prepared and signed’ at my residence in Ileogbo.
“This preposterous and ridiculously ingenious claim and others before it were manipulative imagination of the Adelekes.”
Ogunbiyi also decried the Adelekes for deliberately misinforming the national leadership of the party and the general public about his person, politics and philosophy of life.
