Ogun PDP: Your Visit to Wadata Inconsequential – Bamgbose Tells Ogundele, Others


The Chairman of the Ogun State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Samson Bamgbose has described the visit of Sikirulai Ogundele and others to Wadata Plaza, the National headquarters of the party as “inconsequential”, saying he remains the validly and legally elected chairman of the party in the state.

Speaking in Abeokuta on Friday, Bamgbose said the National headquarters of the party is a public place that is open to all Nigerians.

“Our National Office in Abuja is a public property that is open to all Nigerians. You do not even have to be a member of the PDP before you can access our party headquarters. It is chidish that some persons would have to travel all the way to Abuja in search of a forlorn legitimacy – in continuation of their politics of deceit.

“All politics is local. You have to be relevant in your base before going outside.The national headquarters of our party cannot confer legitimacy on anyone. Our party and nation are creations of the law. Even the national leadership of our party got into office through the instrumentality of the law. That is the same right that we enjoy.

“Before the 2019 general election, these same elements who went on yet another jamboree were always going to Abuja, it did not change anything. In fact, Abuja presented forms and flags to them, it all came to nought.

“Going to Abuja to present some mercenaries and traitors who had been validly removed from office and replaced as evidence of reconciliation and unity without the genuine stakeholders, leaders and elders is nothing but an illusion of grandeur. At the right time, they will be jolted from their slumber and everyone will see that they have once again embarked on a wild goose chase.

“We are on a familiar terrain. At the appropriate time, the law will take its course. One thing is clear: their visit to Abuja does not invalidate the State Executive Committee under my leadership as the Ogun State PDP Chairman which has been given judicial imprimatur by the Federal High Court, Abeokuta and Abuja,” Bamgbose added.
