Following the ongoing decision of a court against the bid of Ademola
Adeleke as the competitor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun express, the gathering has promised to endorse individuals with sanctions against him.
The PDP cautioned the individuals to earnestly pull back every one of the bodies of evidence they initiated against Adeleke in court or be prepared for sanction.
Leadership reports that a statement by Prince Diran Odeyemi, the deputy national publicity secretary of PDP, on Thursday, said the party was not happy with the myriads of cases instituted against it by members.
According to Odeyemi, any member of the PDP who has genuine interest in the party must not allow himself to be used by those who do not mean well for its progress.
In his reaction, however, Akin Ogunbiyi, who was the runner during the Osun PDP gubernatorial primary, denied any link with the travail of Senator Adeleke.
Speaking through Kunle Omolere, the director of strategy, Idera de Movement, Ogunbiyi said: “It is on record that the only case instituted by Dr Ogunbiyi was that of Osun West senatorial ticket which was brazenly taken away from him after all reconciliations to the contrary. The case had long been decided and the rest is left to posterity.”
Pledging his loyalty to the PDP, Ogunbiyi but noted that there is nothing wrong with somebody approaching the court to seek justice when cheated.
“The pursuit of the mandate of the PDP at the tribunal and other courts is the priority of all party members, and to the benefits of Osun people who are counting on the PDP.
“Let it be clear that Dr Ogunbiyi is not doing and will not do anything to frustrate or undermine this shared vision.
“It should also be clearly understood as well that if anybody is alleged to have acted in contrary to the law, he/she is obliged to rationally defend him/herself in the court and not put blames on an innocent man,” the statement said.
