Deji Adeleke shuns Abuja peace meeting, claims he is not a member of PDP

Eniola Fabunmi, Abuja

Fresh facts emerged this morning that Dr Deji Adeleke the main promoter of the Peoples Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke may not attend the peace meeting in Abuja today to reconcile with aggrieved members of the party especially Dr Akin Ogunbiyi and Rt Hon Adejare Bello.

The National Working Committee during the inauguration of the 95 member campaign committee in Abuja on Monday had directed the State Leadership to suspend all rallies scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday to allow them hold the peace meeting with the aggrieved members. Last week, the National Organising Secretary released a list of the members of the National Campaign Committee but omitted key members of the Ogunbiyi camp, but it later amended the list to include Rt Hon Adejare, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi and notable others. The duo of Rt Hon Adejare Bello and Dr Akin Ogunbiyi were absent at the inauguration ceremony.

The National leadership of the party felt it was important to reach out to the aggrieved members, it decided to invite both camps to Abuja today to resolve the crisis. As at the time of filing this report, there was no indication that Dr Deji Adeleke will attend the meeting. One of his aides of Dr Deji Adeleke claimed that his boss may not attend the meeting because he was not a card carrying member of the PDP.

It was gathered that his absence might not be unconnected with the terms of agreement proposed by the National Working Committee ceding certain positions to the Ogunbiyi's camp.

In a related development, Akogun Lere Oyewumi who is the Director General of the Adeleke Campaign Organization has picked nomination form for the Osun West Senatorial seat. This is one of the positions ceded to the Ogunbiyi's camp.

Penultimate last week, Akogun Lere Oyewumi had paid for the nomination form at the State Party Secretariat but his payment was refunded at the instance of the National leadership of the party only for him to show up in Abuja to collect the nomination form through the Admin staff of the party using a proxy.
