Ekiti PDP suspends factional chair, scribe, three others

PDP raises panel to probe erring members

The party, chaired by Chief Idowu Faleye, said that the five members were suspended for alleged anti-party activities pending the outcome of the seven-member disciplinary committee headed by Barrister Kolapo Kolade inaugurated yesterday to investigate the petitions against them.

PDP State Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, who read the SEC resolution, listed the suspended members as the factional chairman, Tunde Olatunde; State Secretary, Dr Tope Aluko; Woman Leader, Mrs Busola Oyebode; State Auditor, Tunji Olanrewaju; and Assistant Secretary, Femi Esan.

But the Olatunde-led faction said they did not have powers to suspend them, saying their action was an affront to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) which had hoped to wade into the crisis next week.

Trouble began in the party when the faction announced the resignation of the PDP State Chairman, Chief Faleye, who they allegedly replaced with Tunde Olatunde as acting chairman, although Faleye said he remained the party’s authentic chairman
