A group within Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Osun PDP Legacy Group, has called for the immediate resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus for allegedly endorsing Senator Ademola Adeleke as the candidate of the party for the governorship election in the state slated for 2022.
The convener of the group, Funmiso Babarinde, made the call in a statement on Saturday, adding that the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Diran Odeyemi, who represented Secondus at a prayer session organised by the Sunday Bisi-led Osun PDP executives last week, informed party faithful at the event that the PDP chairman, had adopted Adeleke as the candidate of the party for Osun 2022 governorship election.
“Quoting Secondus, who spoke through Odeyemi, our national chairman said, it does not matter if anybody else comes out to contest against Ademola Adeleke. The fact remains that the National Chairman has no other candidate in mind but Adeleke.
“Odeyemi told the gathering he was representing Secondus. And we consider an endorsement for Adeleke by no other person but the national chairman as an aberration and unconstitutional. Owning to that, we believe Secondus is morally unfit to continue leading PDP. So, we are demanding his resignation with immediate effect.
