Our attention has been drawn to a publication by an Ibadan Based online media platform “Goal Poacher” News that some leaders in Akinyele Local Government have been suspended over the outcome of the Akinyele-Lagelu house of Representatives primary election
The Integrity Group in Akinyele Local Government described the said publication as an attempt to cause disunity among the PDP members in Akinyele and Lagelu local Governments
The Integrity group led by Kazeem Adepoju warned the publisher “Goal Poacher” News to stop disseminating news without thorough investigation.
This kind of publication is nothing but fake News and sponsored story towards causing disunity among PDP stakeholders in Akinyele-Lagelu federal Constiuency.
“At what meeting or point agreed that Alhaji Tirimisiyu Olaibi who has never defected to any Political party since 1999 even when the party lost power in 2011 should be suspended. The outcome of the primary election in Akinyele-Lagelu federal Constituency was a decision of delegates who appreciates His Excellency Governor Seyi Makinde for allowing the wish of People to prevail.
“As of today leaders and members of PDP in Akinyele are solidly behind Governor Seyi Makinde due to the deserve attention given to the local government through Developmental projects and appointment of Akinyele indigenes into sensitve positions”
“It’s quite unfortunate for “Goal Poacher News” deliberately published that some PDP leaders in Akinyele Local Government was suspended without proper investigation just to please his pay master.”The Group said.
The Integrity Group therefore pledged their support for Governor Seyi Makinde and all the candidates of PDP in both Lagelu and Akinyele Local Governments for progress and unity of the party.The party can’t afford to lose any elective position in the federal Constiuency hence the need to sheath our swords and move the party forward.
Açcording to integrity Group some leaders among the PDP caucus left the party at a critical time but when the party gain its power through emergence of Governor Seyi Makinde in 2019 most of them can now bold identify with the party.
There are some members of PDP caucus leaders in Akinyele Local Government who switched Political parties at will and members of the party should not fall into this trap.Any decision that will cause disunity among the party should be jettison and better ways of addressing the issues on ground.”
“We will resist any attempt to suspend or punish leaders due to the outcome of Lagelu -Akinyele federal Constiuency Primary Election.
The purported suspension is an attempt to create create crisis in Akinyele PDP which may generate to Lagelu local government if not properly managed”
